Rosh Hashanah starts today at sundown today and lasts until Friday, and we're super-excited to nosh on some of our favorite Jewish dishes to celebrate the new year. We borrowed a recipe for sweet and sour cabbage soup from cookbook author and executive chef of New England Soup Factory, Marjorie Druker. It's the kind of simple, delicious peasant food you can eat a whole lot of.

As old-fashioned as it sounds, this soup is one of my favorites. I think of it as Jewish soul food. Brown sugar, raisins and maple syrup help mellow the sharpness of the cabbage. The flavor seems to carry with it the grandmotherly wisdom that life is sometimes sweet and sometimes sour, but the combination balances out. This soup is especially popular among our senior customers, who remember when their mothers made it for them back in the Old Country.
