12 Sweet Apple and Honey Ideas For Rosh Hashanah
How sweet it is! Rosh Hashanah may have the tastiest symbols of any holiday out there — apples and honey. The two sweet foods are believed to help usher in a sweet new year. Unlike other holiday fare, these two foods are as beloved by children as they are by adults. In addition to serving up the traditional bowl of sliced apples that are to be dipped in honey, we've rounded up some other apple- and honey-themed treats that lil ones will enjoy baking up for their dinner guests this year.
Apples Dipped in Honey
The Rosh Hashanah tradition of dipping apples in honey is supposed to represent having a sweet new year. No one ever said the honey had to come out of a honey pot, though! Martha Stewart's idea of carving out an apple and using it as a pot is both fun and sweet!
