A Tu Bishvat Inspired Shabbat Menu
When I lived in Israel, I made sure to take two trips a week to the shuk. It is one of the most invigorating places! My favorite dried fruit and nuts place was a "can't miss" stop on each trip, and the owners most definitely knew me as a regular. Real fruit wins over artificial sweeteners any time, and Tu Bishvat is a beautiful opportunity to appreciate the natural goodness G-d created and gifted us with 365 days a year.
Take advantage of this fruit-focused menu, and make a point of highlighting nature's candy all around us!
