Limited Time Rosh Hashanah Breads and Pastries!

Buckwheat Honeycake. Available Sept. 9-23
Made from a long list of luscious ingredients including a healthy helping of buckwheat honey from a beekeeper in the Pacific Northwest. With a big, bold, fruity flavor, the buckwheat honey adds extra zip. Add in freshly cracked eggs, golden raisins, toasted almonds, fresh orange and lemon zest, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and a few secret ingredients and you’ll get the New Year off to a good start.

Moroccan Challah. Available Sept. 9-23mail-order-able-icon
A sensually spicy North African way to ring in the New Year, this is the challah of the Moroccan Jewish community. Rich, egg-based dough sweetened with honey, woven into a beautiful five-braid loaf ,and then rolled in generous amounts of anise, poppy, and sesame seeds.

Challah Turbans. Available Sept. 9-23mail-order-able-icon
These challah “turbans” come in small and large sizes and two varieties! With or without Myer’s Rum-soaked raisins.

Traditional Jewish Pastries Gift-Boxed for the Holidays! Available all month long. 

Rugelach (“rugel” means royal in Yiddish) is the royalty of traditional Jewish pastries. We make a butter and cream cheese dough and wrap it around very special fillings. Our handsome gift box is filled with a pound of these royally good cookies. Choose from half dark chocolate ganache & half red raspberry preserve, or half apricot & half currant walnut.

Marvelous Mandelbreadmail-order-able-icon
Biscotti’s Eastern European cousin! “Mandel” means almonds in Yiddish, and these are loaded—not laced but literally loaded—with toasted almonds. Made with sweet butter, fresh eggs, lots of fresh orange and lemon zest, and scented with real vanilla. Just the aroma alone is enough to make us excited about these traditional cookies.

Almond Kiflimail-order-able-icon
An irresistible Hungarian treat. The name kifli originally referred to the crescent shape and to savory breads in this shape (it was the precursor to the croissant!). It is available in many parts of Europe by different names. This particular cookie is very popular in Hungary and Austria today. Ours are made with ground almonds and real vanilla bean. They’re addictive, so watch out!


Get the New Year Off to a Sweet Start with Handmade Candy from Zingerman’s!

Bring Home A Limited Edition Rosh Hashanah Super Zzang! Bar
Try the treat Oprah called “Chewy, crunchy, sweet, salty, and highly addictive—this luscious handmade candy bar puts the vending machine stuff to shame.” Big enough for the whole family to share!

Peanut Brittle And Chocolate Covered Peanut Brittlemail-order-able-icon
Choose your pleasure—jumbo runner peanuts cooked perfectly in our deep amber, butterscotch-rich, shatteringly delicious brittle, or all of that covered in amazing dark chocolate. On second thought, why not some of each?

Sesame Halvaharis-favorite-icon
We’re taking candy, and halvah, back to the days before industrial food production. We toast and grind the fresh sesame seeds ourselves and mix it by hand in small batches. Ours is the only handmade halvah that we know of in the U.S. There are no shortcuts to flavor! Toasted fresh sesame seeds, dense and dark muscovado brown sugar, pure Michigan honey, and naturally harvested coarse sea salt all combine to make our halvah radically more flavorful!
