Charoseth or Haroseth Traditional for Passover

April 18, 2011

I have to apologize that I am slightly behind on my Passover recipes to share with you. I was at the Mom 2 Summit conference last week in New Orleans attending and speaking, and I honestly got behind. Many friends have been asking me about traditional Passover foods and the Passover Seder, so I must share this simple recipe for Haroseth (also spelled and pronounced Charoseth). This mixture of wine, nuts and apples is a symbol of the mortar used by the Israelites to bond bricks while they were in slavery in Egypt. It is traditional to serve this with matzoh during the Seder meal with, and without, horseradish. It has an awesome flavor, and it is always is a hit!

Charoseth or Haroseth

Prep: 20 minutes
Yield: 10 to 12 servings
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons Passover red wine (such as Manischewitz)
1 tablespoon honey
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well. Add additional honey and/or wine as desired. Serve with matzoh.
