Hard to believe, but summer is almost over. Almost. Just a few more days to savor some time at the beach, drinking on the porch and some delicious warm-weather eats. And, of course, we want you to try out some perfect summer Jewish food in your last few days. Here are a few of our favorites:
Sip some classic Israeli-style mint lemonade, called limonana, from Tori Avey. Serve it like the Israelis and spike it with Arak, an anise-flavored liquor popular throughout the Middle East. For a fun, kid-friendly twist, you can try limonana ice pops from Kveller.com.
It doesn’t get more classic Easter-European Jewish than borscht. It’s filling and refreshing on these last summer days.
Look to the cookie! Or in this case, look to some black and white cookie ice pops, decadent and delicious.
One of our most popular appetizers for summer, Super Bowl or Shabbat: challah wrapped hot dogs! They will be the star of your Labor Day weekend party.
Go big or go home with a halva ice cream sundae with salted peanuts from Ottolenghi. Or if you are feeling a little lazier, scoop up some vanilla ice cream and serve with a drizzle of tahini, a drizzle of chocolate syrup and some crumbled halva for a sweet and salty treat.
