It’s that end-of-summer/early-autumn time again! This week at the farmers market there were still peaches but already apples. I really think it’s the best time of year for produce – tomatoes AND the first winter squash! Stone fruits AND greens. And of course, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year starts on Sunday night.
We have plenty of Rosh Hashanah/High Holy Days content already on the blog, so please check it out by clicking each photo.
We also have some great menu ideas and recipe roundups for the holidays:
