On the second night of Rosh Hashanah, a “new fruit,” i.e., a seasonal fruit which we have not yet tasted since its season began should be present on the table when the holiday candles are lit and the Kiddush is recited.
Instead of a plate of fruit, here is a more elegant solution. Give each guest their own “new fruit” cup. Mine is made with red currants, kiwi and gold tamarillo from New Zealand drizzled with a touch of pomegranate juice and honey. Everything was delicious although the tamarillo, which I had never tried before, was a bit too tart. So, try my recommendation sans the tamarillo, or use your imagination.
The winner of the Rosh Hashanah honey and apple gift basket is Zahava from New York. Congratulations!
