LIGHTNING RELEASES (08/29/14)- Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year – is fast approaching. A day believed to be the anniversary of Adam and Eve’s creation, it includes customs such as sounding of the shofar (a hollowed-out ram’s horn) and eating apples dipped in honey, symbolizing the start to a sweet new year. A celebration of this importance requires care and attention to even the smallest details—and especially the foods—ensuring a special and memorable occasion.Here’s a selection of Kosher products sure to enhance the festivities:

  • Bellenda Prosecco (Italy) is affordably priced at $16 and is a dry sparkler offering nutty notes with hint of apple. En Fuego Cava Reserva (Spain) is a delicate citrusy bubbly and can be found for $14.
  • Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup adds flourish to the New Year’s toast. The edible hibiscus flower is preserved in simple syrup and perfectly complements both sparklers. A drizzle of syrup gives the wine a beautiful rosy hue.
  • Whipped raw honey crèmes from Honey Ridge Farms come in five luscious flavors—raspberry, blackberry, clover, lemon and spice— for apple dipping or to drizzle on freshly baked challah bread. Clover and Spice are especially nice for baking.
  • Pair honey crèmes with nuts, pomegranate, apples, dates and Kosher-certified cheeses. These days there are many tasty choices, including Tillamook’s Kosher Cheddar and Woolwich Dairy’s Original Chevrai, a soft fresh goat cheese.

Shopping Sources: These Kosher wines (and others) can be found at wine and spirit shops and supermarkets. Wild Hibiscus Flowers In Syrup is available at select beverage and specialty food stores and online at www.bevmo.com.  Whipped honey crèmes can be ordered directly at www.honeyridgefarms.com. Look for the cheeses in supermarkets (many have Kosher dairy and cheese sections).
