Foods have a symbolic role in the rituals and celebration of Jewish holidays. At Rosh Hashanah, it is to bring all that one hopes for “sweet things” to come during the year. That is why regular potatoes are replaced by sweet potatoes.


Bake sweet potatoes in the oven until soft. When done, let cool.
Slice potato in half, length wise. Scoop the potatoes (leave in serving-sized pieces)
out of their skins and place them in a casserole dish. To make the syrup, take 1 cup
of brown sugar and keep stirring in warm water until it makes a pourable liquid.
Pour over potatoes in the casserole dish. Heat in oven and when ready to serve.

Place marshmallows on top of potatoes, and place back in the oven under the broiler.
It only takes a few minutes for the marshmallows to brown on top,
so keep watching its progress. Remove and serve.

1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup butter, melted
Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and flour together in a bowl.
Pour butter over pecan mixture. Toss until mixture resembles
coarse crumbs (pea size). Put on top of sweet potatoes evenly
and place in oven and let bake until topping is hard.
