New Year of the Trees

How did I not know about this lovely little Jewish holiday? It's called Tu Bishvat, or New Year of the Trees. On January 25-26, it's tradition to eat 15 kinds of fruits and nuts with 4 glasses of wine while reciting blessings to bring the world closer to spiritual perfection. Then you plant a tree! My kind of celebration.

Erin of Forest Feast toasted the trees' new year with Feast wine and spiced apricots in dark chocolate.
