The Jewish New Year starts tonight, and I'm busy as a balabuste making and mending, washing and sloshing! I got a jump on my Rosh Hashanah recipes this year as Joy of Kosher asked me to put together a gluten free menu. It also happens to be allergy free---dairy, egg and peanut free---in order to accommodate all the special dietary needs in my family.
It is customary to eat certain foods that are symbolic of all the things we want in the new year, health, prosperity, sweetness in our lives, etc. (http://www.kashrut.com/articles/simanim/). These are called simanim in Hebrew. I put them together in an exciting new way with my Simanim Summer Roll (recipe below). For more of my holiday menu, check out Joy of Kosher online.
