There are lots of other simanim we could use—fish heads, sheep heads, gourd, or black-eyed peas—but they’re not all that appetizing for a dessert. (Serve those early in the game, while everyone is still hungry.) For dessert, I tapped the trusty pomegranate once more—finish your Rosh Hashanah meal with a super siman swirl!
