Celebrating Tu Bishvat with exotic chicken
The holiday can be so much more than mixed nuts and dried figs.
Tu Bishvat is a versatile, ever-evolving holiday. It started off as an agricultural holiday in the land of Israel, helping Jewish followers calculate the age of a tree and the tithe given of its fruit. Later, Tu Bishvat became a day of planting new trees in the young state of Israel.
