Ring in the New Year

The two day celebration of Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, begins tonight at sundown. The high holiday is a time for reflection and repentance, but it probably doesn’t surprise you that my favorite part is the food. Traditionally, apples are dipped in honey, a symbol that the new year will be sweet, but why not take that idea to the next level? Try duck legs braised in apple cider and honey, or a decadent caramelized upside-down apple pie. I’m also a sucker for classic foods such as salmon gravlax and my grandma’s chopped chicken liver. Here are nine recipes I can’t celebrate Rosh Hashanah without. You’ll love them, whether you’re Jewish or not. Just a warning: I don’t keep kosher in my house, so not all of these recipes are kosher friendly. But if you do—or if you have guests who may—omitting the non-kosher ingredients is perfectly fine in most cases.
