21 new ways to do apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is quickly approaching for 2015 (it starts on the evening of Sept. 13), and in Jewish households around the world, menu preparations are currently being made.

Rosh Hashanah, which celebrates the Jewish New Year, calls for dipping apples into honey, a practice rich in symbolism. According to Chabad, combining an apple with honey is meant to call forth a sweet new year, while the apple itself is meant to recall the Garden of Eden.

Below, you'll find 21 new ideas for putting together apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah meals. Just note, some use ingredients like milk or yogurt, so if you're keeping your meal dairy-free or pareve, be sure to substitute an appropriate item — Kosher Woman has an excellent chart with suggestions.

L'shana tova!
