Whether you celebrate Rosh Hashanah or not, it's a nice opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Why should new beginnings be limited to once per year, anyway?
My dad likes to host a big family dinner for Rosh Hashanah. He's providing the main part of the meal. I'm bringing the challah, which I made this morning. The recipe is from King Arthur Flour, it's called "No-Knead Challah".
I made the dough last night. No kneading required, just a quick spin in the Kitchen-Aid, then an overnight rest in the refrigerator.
The dough has an unusual texture coming out of the fridge, kind of stiff and lumpy. No worries though; it's supposed to be that way.
