Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur are not specifically Harvest fests, though they come during harvest season and they certainly are festivals, in a sort. So here is my second Challah ever. Recipe from Bread Baker's Apprentice - shoulda made two loaves, but twisted into one mega-loaf. Great for celebration with friends and family AND leftover french bread on day 2.
