when i dip, you dip, we dip

many of us are familiar with dipping apples in honey for a sweet year.  this year, take some time to elevate your rosh hashana table with a presentation that will be sure to sweeten more than your apple.  when setting the table, prepare each setting with the bread and butter plate (the little plate we often use for fish).  squeeze a few squirts of honey on each plate (so it makes a circle) and top it with a lady finger apple (they look like mini apples and can be found at many grocery and produce stores).  voila. thank you my lady! before eating the apples and honey be sure to say the blessing: Barukh ata Ado-nai Eloheinu Melekh ha‑olam, bo're p'ri ha‑etz. the translation: blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the ground.
