Rosh Hashanah Challah

leave a comment »

This past weekend was the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish new year).  As with many Jewish holidays, the focus is largely around, “what are we going to eat?”  On the Jewish new year, it is customary to eat a round challah, as it symbolizes the circle of life and the cycle of a new year.  So, I opted for baking the challah this year, and was really happy with the results; not too sweet and just the right amount of richness.  From start to finish, the process took approximately 24-hours…well worth it. 🙂
