Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish religious holiday representing the New Year, so traditionally apples dipped in honey are part of the menu during this holiday.
Today I will post my recipe for a Jewish Apple Cake, which was given to me by a friend a couple of decades ago. I was not sure what made this particular recipe “Jewish”, so I turned to my readers for their feedback. One reader explained that Jewish desserts are usually made without dairy, so they can be served alongside the meat dishes, which also makes it a great dessert for Hanukkah holiday. If anyone else has a different take on this theory, please share your comments
I love honey cake, but especially more so around the holidays. There is something very soothing about having hot herbal tea with a piece of honey cake, on a cold winter day, which is perfect around Christmas.
My most favorite season is Spring, but Summer and early Autumn are next on my list.
I love the beauty of flowering plants, and wish they would last forever. However, the hot weather and the upcoming Autumn season is already marking its presence in my summer garden.
Most of my vegetable plants are done for the season, except tomatoes, so I am hoping that my second try with seeding cucumbers, dill, parsley and red beets will be successful before the frost gets here. I will keep you posted, as this is my first time ever trying to extend the growing season of these veggies and herbs.
