Beginning this Wednesday at sundown, and continuing through Thursday, is the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of the Trees. We mark the day of Tu B’Shevat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Israel: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. Here are some gorgeous and delicious recipes using these tasty and healthy fruits! (Just click on the links under the pictures to see the full recipes)
