HAPPY TU B'SHVAT!
Happy Tu B'Shvat! When I first started calling Tu B'Shvat my favorite Jewish holiday back in the day, I was partially joking. But at this point, it really is my favorite holiday. It's a reason to savor fruits and nuts I ordinarily wouldn't buy, and when I laid everything out on the table, I couldn't help but think that the collection of colors was truly beautiful. Tu B'Shvat is the definitive heebnvegan holiday. And celebrating with a bunch of friends over certainly didn't hurt either!
We had the following fruits and nuts this year: pineapple, coconut, pummelo, uniquefruit, grapefruit, mango, plum, nectarine, persimmon, apple, pear, peach, kiwi, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, dates, walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, and filberts.
