Adding notes of flavor, honey sweetens new year
"It’s time to savor the sweet life.
As part of Rosh Hashanah celebrations marking the Jewish New Year, slices of apple are dipped in honey. It’s an ancient custom symbolizing good wishes for a sweet new year.
“It’s such a natural thing to want to do,” said Amina Harris, director of the UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center. “It makes celebration easy. Kids love it. Why not make a mess of your tabletop? Have fun.”
But which honey tastes best? That’s where the sweet life gets a little complicated."
