sunday dinner redux - love on a plate with a twist 4 - happy rosh hashanah!
Celebrate the Jewish New Year, as Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Friday, September 18 and ends at nightfall on Sunday September 20.
As you look forward to the brand new year with the sweet tastes of fruit and honey, enjoy this easy and delicious sweet glaze on chicken or even salmon. Combine equal amounts of honey, red pepper jelly, and Dijon mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste. You may even add a bit of cayenne pepper; surprisingly, the red pepper jelly doesn't add a lot of heat to this glaze, just great flavor. As you can imagine, this recipe can be personalized with all sorts of special touches; use honey mustard instead of Dijon, experiment with different types of honey (darker honeys are wonderful in this recipe).
If baking, the glaze can be added to the meat immediately and creates some tasty pan juices. If grilling, add the glaze at the last moment and keep a close watch on the meat so it does not burn.
