Its Rosh Hashanah and we are looking for sweets to eat with the hopes of having a sweet year.
A delicious sweet main course was found on the following website:
Pomegranate Glazed Lamb Chops.
- 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 10 garlic cloves minced
- 1/3 cup pomegranate molasses
- 3 tablespoons dried mint crushed
- 2 tablespoons dried rosemary crushed
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Three 2 1/4-pound frenched racks of lamb, cut into individual chops
How to Make It
In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil with the garlic, pomegranate molasses, mint, rosemary, 2 teaspoons of salt and a generous pinch of pepper. Add the lamb chops and turn to coat with the pomegranate glaze; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Lightly season the chops with salt and pepper; grill over moderately high heat, turning, until they are lightly charred outside and medium-rare within, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve the lamb with the Plum Compote
We tested the recipe and it was amazing. It was sweet and savory at the same time. This would be a wonderful main course to serve for your Rosh Hashanah dinner.
My favorite treat at Rosh Hashanah is dates. The are numerous recipes that incorporate this delicacy. They are also wonderful to eat just as simple dates. However, I cam across a recipe for kofta stuffed dates in a cookbook called millennial kosher. It was written by the same person who runs the website what a Jew wants to eat. It is both sweet and savory at the same time. The book also has other wonderful recipes.
It at this time of the year that we would like to wish our friends and clients a healthy, happy and prosperous new year.
