Other Blogs, Other Posts: Rosh Hashana Challah

round braided challah using Tamar Ansh's method From the Jewish Press

Braiding seems to be a big theme this year . . .

Kosher Camembert does a round braid
So does G6
And Creative Jewish Mom

Cook Kosher has a video showing how to make a 6-strand braided round challah, a 4-strand braided round challah, and a no braid round challah (crown challah)

The first time that I saw this braiding technique was in Tamar Ansh’s book A Taste of Challah (a challah recipe from that book and photos of the braiding technique are here on the OU website). Take a look at Tamar’s website for more information.

Last year, Tamar showed another round braiding technique in the Jewish Press, which I tried with great success.

This year, Tamar has a post on Joy of Kosher showing an even easier technique for a round braid. (Jamie has a video demonstrating this technique)

Here is an interesting round braid technique made by linking together challah loops.

Here is one more round braiding technique.

Why round challah?

See here and here.
