Sweet Corn for a Sweet New Year

It’s traditional to eat apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah, to make concrete (and edible) your prayers for a sweet new year.

We’re waiting for a chance to pick up some local honey from our friends’ hives once it’s been harvested, and we just picked some apples in a friend’s orchard this afternoon. But to celebrate Rosh Hashanah eat-local-style, we had fresh sweet corn from my parents’ garden.

It may not be traditional, but it was so, so good. I’m up for creating new traditions so that our holiday cycle and harvest cycle can mesh up in sustainable ways…If ripe corn and Rosh Hashanah fall together again, I’ll be very happy to celebrate this way.
