n the traditions of many Jewish
holidays, there's a poetic rela-
tionship between the festival's
culinary laws and that season's foods.
While the relationship linking Rosh
Hashanah with apples and honey
never grows old, the elegant and
elusive pomegranate is less acknowl-
edged, though profoundly tied to bib-
lical literature and ancient agriculture.
SQUASH RINGS WITH
Simple and sweet, these golden
circles topped with the contrasting tart
glaze will round out your dinner plate.
Be careful slicing the squash. Use a
very sharp paring knife, inserting the
point first and employing a gently saw-
ing motion. The easiest way to remove
the seeds is to cut loose the strand
around them with scissors, and then
scrape them away with a spoon.
You can make the glaze well ahead
of time. It keeps indefinitely, and also
is good on all vegetables, grains, tofu,
chicken, meat, etc.

Pomegranate seeds offer the kind
of culinary beauty that cause us to
slow down, take note and absorb the
sacred spirit of newness. That being
said, they can be a pain to wrangle.
Here is an easy (and un-messy)
method for mining a pomegranate:
Have at the ready a big bowl of water.
Cut the fruit into quarters, and sub-
merge them. Peel them under water,
and keep them in there as you comb
through with your fingers to loosen
the seeds. The skins and inedible
pith will float to the surface (skim
this away thoroughly, and discard),
and the seeds will readily sink to the
bottom. Strain, and you've got the
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (or more
Make glaze: Combine ingredients in
a small bowl, and mix until smooth.
Taste to adjust lime juice.
Prepare squash: Position a rack in
the center of the oven, and preheat the
oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking tray
with foil, and coat it lightly with olive
oil. Arrange the squash slices on the
prepared tray, and place the tray in the
After about 15-20 minutes (or
when the squash is fork-tender and
lightly browned on top and around
the edges), remove the tray from the
oven, and spoon or brush the still-
hot squash with a light coating of the
To serve: Serve squash hot, warm or
at room temperature, decorated with
pomegranate seeds. Pass a little dish of
extra glaze at the table.
