Recipes for the Holiday

On Tu Bishvat it is traditional to eat fruit associated with the land of Israel. The “classical” fruits are the seven species described in Deuteronomy 8:8, “a land of wheat and barley, of vines [grapes], figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey [dates].” But today many people celebrate the holiday by cooking with all kinds of fruit. Here are some recipes you can make for your own Tu Bishvat celebration:
