The best Tu Bishvat staples in one festive tart
Take the usual fruits and nuts, add caramel sauce and presto.
A little bowl of mixed nuts and dried fruit has become the greatest symbol of the Tu Bishvat holiday. Take any mix of fruit and nuts, whether it’s a trail mix with chocolate chunks or a roasted and salted nut mix, combine it with a little homemade caramel sauce and bake in a tart crust. Now the holiday is festive again.
