Pomegranate Gears Up for High Holidays

As it prepares for the observation of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), which begins on the evening of Sept. 18 and lasts through the 20th, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based kosher gourmet supermarket Pomegranate is introducing many innovative foods and recipes for the occasion.

Among the traditional holiday fare offered will be freshly baked round challah (egg bread), a wide assortment of pure honey and honey-flavored baked goods, and store-prepared takeout meals made from all-natural ingredients.

As the store’s namesake fruit is often eaten during this time, takeout selections include pomegranate chicken, pomegranate lamb kebabs, roast beef with pomegranate sauce, pomegranate with basmati rice, pomegranate apple salad and pomegranate romaine salad. Printed recipes will also be available to all shoppers.

More traditional dishes for which the store will offer printed recipes are tongue polonaise, chicken marsala, sea bass in tomato sauce and red-wine minute steak, among others.

As well as the classic honey cake for dessert, shoppers can treat themselves to honeyed cigars with date-pomegranate filling, chocolate honey velvet cake or pomegranate shortcake.

Also on offer will be alcohol-free Pomegranate sangría, which the store describes as “great for adults and kids alike.”

Other important Jewish holidays during this time of the year are Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Harvest Festival) and Simchat Torah (Rejoicing with the Torah).
