Rosh Hashanah is fast approaching (Sunday, September 25, 2022 – September 27, 2022). Yom Kippur is also right around the corner (October 4, 2022 and October 5, 2022).
For my Jewish readers, I thought I would share this great information with you about some delicious recipes and must-have products to help you celebrate these important holidays with your friends and family.
Rosh Hashana means delicious, festive family holiday meals, made with certain symbolic foods and eaten to express wishes and prayers for a good year. One such tradition is dipping apples in honey and honey on challah for sweetness, while other traditional recipes and new recipes include brisket and other new scrumptious creations like short ribs and salmon. Yum!
KAYCO, America’s largest source for on-trend, gourmet-forward kosher products, and Kosher.com, the leading destination for all things kosher food, have teamed up to unveil new products, recipes, usages and other super sweet products to help re-invent how you celebrate the sweet New Year during the holidays, and every day.
New to the Rosh Hashana table is the Heaven & Earth Date Syrup in a 12-ounce bottle (SRP of $5.49) and Heaven & Earth Granulated Date ‘Sugar’ also at 12 ounces (SRP of $7.49). Both the syrup and the ‘sugar’ are made with only one ingredient – 100% dates.
A low glycemic, better-for-you sweetener, dates make for a perfect replacement for sugar, honey, maple syrup, and molasses. The Heaven and Earth Syrup Granulated ‘Sugar’ varieties are ideal for baking, cooking, and adding to your morning coffee or tea. Available in both syrup and granulated “sugar” varieties, they are certified vegan and gluten-free.
I had the opportunity to try out the date syrup. Initially I was curious as to what I could do with this, since I have never heard of date syrup before. I tried it on frozen waffles to see how it tastes, and it taste so good.
This syrup has a fruity taste to it. It does taste like dates, so if you are not a fan of dates you might not like this product. I think this is a great alternative to maple syrup. I can’t wait to try it on French toast and pancakes.
Manischewitz Apple Butter (SRP of $6.49) is another wonderful product for your holiday celebrations (and every day!). It combines the traditions of apple and the sweetness of honey butter. This is perfect for your Challah, recipes, and as an alternative to dipping apples.
OH MY GOODNESS! This is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I can literally eat this straight from the jar! It’s THAT good! It tastes a lot like apple sauce – but more “gourmet” than the stuff I normally get from the grocery store (if that makes any sense). It’s sweet, but not overly sweet.
I spread this on toast, just to see how it was. The consistency is different than other spreads I’ve used, but none the less, it’s delicious. I am going to buy more of this for sure.

No Rosh Hashanah celebration could pass the test without traditional honey. Popular staples include the Gefen 1lb Honey Bear (SRP of $8.79) and Gefen 2lb Honey Bear (SRP of $13.99), along with the Manischewitz Honey Bear (SRP of $6.49).
The honey bear is a staple in my pantry. There is never not a honey bear in my pantry unless someone used it without telling us we needed a replacement.
We use the Manischewitz Honey Bear for so many things – to add sweetness to tea, on toast, my daughter uses it as an ingredient in a face mask, and we mix it with hot water to help treat a sore throat, just to name a few. It has so many great uses (Google them!). It also it has a lengthy shelf life.

Brisket and other recipes never tasted so good made with Tuscanini Sweet White and Red Cooking Wine (SRP of $9.99). It offers authentic made-in-Italy foods with the highest quality ingredients for a real taste of Italy, enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. These delicious, imported cooking wines from Italy offer sweet solutions to traditional favorites.
Last, but certainly not least, Gefen Homestyle Apple Cake is so sweet and delicious, you may even be tempted to claim it as your own recipe (ha ha). It’s available in 15.89 oz packages.
