Happy Rosh Hashanah! Have you made your challah yet?
Challah is typically made as a long, braided loaf, its crust a shiny golden brown from a glaze of beaten egg applied before baking.
But Rosh Hashanah challah, which celebrates the Jewish new year, often appears in a spiral — signifying the circle of life.
This particular challah is studded with fresh apple and raisins, and rolled in an aromatic coating of cinnamon-sugar — autumn flavors to complement the September Rosh Hashanah holiday.
Don’t observe Rosh Hashanah? Try this challah anyway. You can never go wrong with apples, cinnamon, and raisins, right?
