Rosh Hashanah: Consider these fruits for your holiday table


Sort of like a casserole, kugel is a popular holiday side dish among Ashkenazi Jews. Kugels are usually based in potato, egg noodle, or veggie and typically can be classified as either sweet or savory. I’ve always preferred savory kugels myself, but this sweet and savory apple kugel from Living Sweet Moments might just change my vote!

Apples and raisins provide the sweet, while sauteed onions give you the savory. You might think apples and onions don’t mix, but don’t knock it till you try it!
