Tu B'shvat Roundup

Written by Cook Kosher on Tuesday, 07 February 2012. Posted in Food Mood

Tu B’shvat falls on the 15 of Shevat and as the kids' school song goes – it starts "a new year for the trees". It is customary to eat fruit on this day, particularly fruit that are singled out by the Torah in it’s praise of Israel. These fruit are grapes, figs, pomegranates, olive and dates. In addition, we customarily eat a new fruit that we didn’t eat the entire season so that we can recite the blessing of Shehecheyanu

Some families take the opportunity and fill the table with all different types of exotic fruits and spend the night tasting fruit they’ve never tried. It’s a great way to get the family together. Here are some CookKosher favorites:
