Rosh Hashanah Recipe: Pomegranate Coolers
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a time for reflection and looking forward -- and for sharing a meal with family and friends. It is often celebrated with foods rich in symbolism: Apples are dipped in honey to signify the wish for sweetness in the months to come, and pomegranates, with their many seeds, represent a fruitful year.
