There are lots of ways to incorporate honey into Rosh Hashanah celebrations, to get the new year off to a sweet start.
If you've got small kids and want to include them in the preparations, try these recipes--ones for honey cakes, one for green apple soda.
Another approach for families with kids is this recipe for honey-apple cupcakes, complete with decorations you can print out for the tops of the cupcakes. (They adorn picks, which are placed in the cupcakes.
If you've got more sophisticated adult palates at your table, npr.com has some foodie-type beauties--rosemary honey apple galette, anyone?
Have to pull off a miracle in minutes? Slice some Gala or other sweet apples onto individual dessert plates, arrange in a circle (or other artistic-looking presentation of your choosing), top with a mixture of walnuts and dried cranberries, raisins, cherries and/or other nuts or dried fruits (I think it's advisable to toss in Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips as well), then drizzle with a mixture of honey and maple syrup. Cover with a bowl and microwave for about 90 seconds to two minutes, or until the apples are cooked through. If you like, top the creation with whipped cream or mascarpone, which provides a cool, creamy counterpoint to the warm goodness of the apple mixture.
Nobody will ever guess you just threw that together!
