Want to make something exciting to eat for Rosh Hashanah but tired of the same old things? Impress your chavurah with a spin on apples and honey… by adding them to deviled eggs!
It’s surprising that the egg is not a traditional Rosh Hashanah symbol. During Passover, we place an egg on the Seder plate because it represents the beginning of life, as we celebrate the birth of the Jewish people as a nation. Likewise on Rosh Hashanah, not only do we celebrate the beginning of the world, but it is a chance for personal “rebirth” or renewal.
So it’s a perfect plan to mix eggs with apples and honey, which symbolize a sweet New Year. These eggs are much sweeter than your usual deviled fare, and they’re a delicious way to bring in the year to come.
Huge thanks to my fiancée for the idea and helping me develop the recipe.
