A tradition for a sweet new year, honey, has important meaning for the celebrants of Rosh Hashanah. The festive meal is an important aspect of the holiday, with foods that symbolize hope for the coming twelve months. Among the most traditional of foods is honey, which is eaten with challah and apples.
This year, as the world goes green, and with the bees suffering from a mysterious colony collapse disorder, a new tradition for the New Year's table is organic honey, made the way nature intended. Certified organic honey is made with no chemicals, drugs or antibiotics.
Local health food stores and farmer's markets as well as gourmet markets abound with organic honey, as do the following sources:
Whole Foods Markets
Trader Joe's Markets
Wild Oats Markets
