18 Rosh Hashanah recipes for a sweet new year

Whether you want to stick with the traditional or go for something more contemporary, we've got you covered

Forget 2015 (that's so far away!) — get ready to party like it's 5775. This Wednesday evening, the shofar will sound and the Jewish year will change from 5774 to 5775. Honey bottles will be emptied, apples sliced, cakes baked, and bottles of Manischewitz drained.

Celebrate the new year with traditional Rosh Hashanah foods — beets, fish heads, pomegranates, carrots, leeks, dates, and, of course, apple cake — or show off your alternative side with something more New Age and fusion-y. And even if you aren't celebrating the holiday, these first bright fall days are reason enough to invite your friends over, cook dishes you missed over the summer, and reflect on the past year.
