This Roasted Fruit with Milk and Honey recipe is based on the offering of fruit trees and the land of milk and honey. Fruit trees are deep rooted into the land. They become integral to communities through their root systems and as perennials, are a reliable source of food. A land flowing with milk and honey is one that is illuminated with our acts of mitzvot. The baked fruit, topped with goat or non-dairy cheese and date syrup are symbolic of milk and honey. This delicious, sweet dish, is great as an appetizer or dessert.
