Rosh Hashana


Recommended Posts

I did a bunch of cooking yesterday, so I can make Significant Eater a nice Rosh Hashanah meal tonight. In addition to @rancho_gordo's yellow eye beans (I thought I had a stash of black eyed peas, but no dice) and matza balls...

A small (like 3 lbs.) brisket was braised (in the steam girl!) and chicken stock was made. I still can't decide if I should make tzimmes (which neither of us is a huge fan of), or just maybe glazed carrots. Sweet potatoes or regular potatoes.  Decisions, decisions.

tzimmes is gross... if neither is a fan, I say nix it!

Can be gross, had some terrible tzimmes over the years. It can also be quite good.

Anything is possible - but I've never had a good one!  Then again, most family members we've visited who made it aren't very good cooks in the first place...

Challah is done! Baked while on a zoom call with my office. 😃

 

Kreplach  and soup were done and frozen on Sunday.  Mom cooked a brisket.  Cornish hens will be roasted. Kasha and bowties, some sort of salad and vegetables. Apple honey cake. 

 

May everybody celebrating have a happy, sweet, delicious and healthy new year! Shana tova u'metukah!

I love matzoh balls but prefer the chew of the kreplach. I am also the goof that volunteers to take leftover tzimmes home, reheat gently in MW and top with soft egg and hot sauce for breakfast. Enjoy! This coming year will hopefully be better.

Our family is a mixed one. My husband is Jewish and I’m not. So Rosh Hashana meal that I cooked is neither authentic nor Kosher.  We ate it while streaming services from the central synagogue in New York City. I cried a lot. And laughed a lot. Shana Tova to everyone.

 

Red cabbage and apple slaw.

Sous vide short ribs was roasted enocki mushrooms and some random hot sauce.

Is that the poppy filling from the Solo can? Possibly my favorite cake is the one from the back of the can. Like the combo you show.

Maybe the key to making a tsimmes which doesn't cause @KennethT to run from the table is to leave out the prunes, and make it less sweet.  Both of which were accomplished here, using riesling and stock and no honey. I was sorta surprised.

 

It went along with our meal nicely.

Prunes will definitely make me go running.... To the bathroom!

 

And in addition, I think they probably upped the sweet factor a lot.  They also disintegrate way more than any of the dried fruits I used.

Lima beans gratin with bechamel, Emmental, onion, sage, tarragon, lots of pepper, some nutmeg. Buttery breadcrumbs. 

Tzimmes with raisins, plums, apricots. Lightly spiced with toasted coriander, fresh ginger, cinnamon, aniseed, nutmeg and pepper. Finished with butter. No added sugar, no orange.

Panzanella. Tomatoes and croutons with a pesto-vinaigrette of basil with olive oil, garlic, vinegar, mustard, chili.

Cabbage salad with apple and pomegranate. Yogurt dressing with poppy seeds toasted in butter, cider vinegar, silan.

A small challah.

Tsimmes/tzimmes looks good. As it all does.

 

I didn't mention, but I also used fresh ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

 

And I failed to mention the (@rancho_gordo) yellow eye beans over in the dinner thread. Served alongside the brisket.

A lonely Rosh Hashanah Seder.   Was hoping to have my son and his gf over but she developed a cough and so they backed out.  BIL had to much work to do.  Did a zoom Seder with my extended family in Tampa and elsewhere.  Had all the traditional dishes that go along with the Seder

I roasted a 5.5 lb chicken with roasted root vegetables.

L'shana tova, @Pam R and all.

 

After the weekend, perhaps let me know how you fill the kreplach - I was this close to making them, but opted for matzoh balls instead.

Check out my infamous (in my mind) eGullet Kreplach demo!   Basically soup chicken (or beef or leftover roast or. .  etc) ground up with caramelized onions and a little boiled potato to bind it. 

 

Shana tova!

Interesting, @Pam R. One thing I've seen in almost all the recipes I've looked at is that the dough they make is an egg flour dough. Any idea on why they use that instead of a water flour dough?

I think most (many?) people use more of a pasta dough, but we've always done them with a perogie dough -- maybe it depends on where your ancestors are from?  It makes sense to me that my eastern European/Russian ancestors make something that's more comparable to dumplings from that region than something closer to a tortellini (though my people probably come from Italy, they put in a long time in Russia/Poland before coming to Canada).

Yeah, that makes sense.  Not that I remember my ancestors from Russia/Poland ever making kreplach, though I could be misremembering.

My baba and great aunts definitely made all of the traditional foods like kreplach and knishes (and would even come into my mom's catering business to teach our staff how to make the stretch dough for knishes). ;)   We grew up with the meat filled ones for soup, or they were filled with pressed cottage cheese or potato/onion.  And not my favorite, but if somebody found some wild Saskatoon berries and picked them for her, my grandmother would make them filled with berries.
