Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts tonight, and its arrival has filled my head with thoughts of homemade chicken soup, brisket, and apple cake. Hey, food's a big part of being Jewish—take a read . However, since living on my own, I tend to overlook the traditional dipping of apples in honey (you eat sweet food in the hopes of a sweet year ahead, get it?)—that is, until I discovered that Colorado's bounty includes apples .
You can go pick your own at a number of farms around the state , or—since this is short notice—simply head to Whole Foods Market , Marczyk Fine Foods , or Spinelli's Market  and take your pick of Jonagolds, Galas, and more.
