My children occasionally do not eat the entire apple. I cut off the bitten part and freeze the rest. Frozen apples can be made into vinegar and diced for cooking. Since I also save up the ends of breads, the freezer is getting emptied out for a good cleaning for the upcoming New Year. Apples and honey are an important pairing in the Jewish culture, symbolizing a relationship with God and good fortune.

Apple and Honey Bread Pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ t. nutmeg
  • ¼ t. cinnamon
  • About 4-5 cups diced bread
  • 2 cups diced apples
  • ¼ cup melted butter and ¼ cup honey, combined

Preheat the oven to 350*. Grease the bread pan with the margarine. Combine the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a bowl, and beat well. Stir in bread cubes and apples. Wait approximately ten minutes to let the liquid become absorbed by the bread. Bake for 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter and honey.  Bake an additional 10-15 minutes until a knife inserted into the center is withdrawn cleanly. (Serve with whipped cream). Alternatively, bake and brush with honey and melted butter, just before serving.
