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)
See more pomegranate recipes in this post.
I am totally in love with this veggie and fruit buffet. What a wonderful way to display your fruit and vegetables on Tu B’Shevat- even the kids would be excited to taste from all the healthy treats!
Check out more pictures of this beautiful veggie display here.
