If you’ve never made, tasted or heard of charoset then head to the store and get these simple ingredients. It’s traditionally served at passover seders (usually in a paste-like consistency) to represents the mortar that the Israelites used to bond bricks when they were kept as slaves in Egypt.
I’ve been the “charoset maker” for our family passover seders for years and this is my go-to recipe because everyone loves it and it can be quite addictive.
This charoset is chocked full of sweet and tart apples, raw honey, crunchy walnuts, brown sugar , and warm spices of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. For passover, I always add in some sweet Kosher red wine.
There is no need to wait until passover or until your Jewish friends invite you to a seder to enjoy this charoset, make it anytime you’d like! I like to serve this throughout the year with homemade cinnamon sugar tortilla chips! Yum!
