While it’s not necessarily central to the holiday, challah has become an integral part of many Rosh Hashanah celebrations. If you don’t celebrate, Rosh Hashanah takes place from sundown tonight to nightfall on September 6. It’s one of four Jewish new years, and it’s synonymous with the creation of new humans, animals, legal contracts, and, of course, now, good food!
To celebrate, challah’s just one of many dishes you can whip up! Though most people buy challah at the store these days, making your own can be a fun way of getting in touch with your heritage. But whether you buy it or make it, if you’re like us, any holiday entails stocking up on way more food than any reasonable guests could possibly eat. So there’s a good chance you’ll have some challah left over after Rosh Hashanah. Without a little planning, any bread product goes from “leftover” to “trash” quickly. So it’s good to have a few recipes on hand so that you can keep your challah from going to waste.
