Kick off Passover with this sweet treat
Charoset is a simple fruit mixture that can be spread on matzo or eaten alone. This recipe includes the standard apples and walnuts, but there are many versions of this Seder favorite.
Servings: 3 to 4 cups
3 apples, peeled and diced
1 cup walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon sugar, or brown sugar
1 tablespoon red wine, sweet like Manischewitz
1 tablespoon honey
- Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine evenly.
- If you want this to be more of a spread, combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until just forming a paste.
- Serve with matzo.
