Green chili peppers make this dessert a slightly savory tart ideal for ringing in 5774.
It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over and the High Holidays are upon us. First up is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year: very similar to secular New Year’s, except with less cheap champagne and more apples and honey. Much like every Jewish holiday, there are customs and symbols for the day, including especially the practice of eating sweet foods for a sweet new year: pomegranates, dates, beets and the iconic apples-and-honey combo.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I want my year to be a little sweet and also a little spicy, too. So I added green chilies to my rustic Apple and Honey Galette. The result is a slightly savory tart ideal for ringing in 5774. L’shanah tova!
