Charoset – Apple Mixture for Passover*

Charoset

This is the apple mixture used during the Passover seder.  It represents the mortar that the Israelites had to use during their making of bricks in Egypt. It is not made of mud and straw, but of apples, walnuts and honey.   This recipe serves about four people and can be doubled or tripled depending on how many people are coming to your seder.

1/2 cup walnuts, finely ground

1 tart apple

1 Tbsp. wine or grape juice

1 tsp. honey

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Pare, core, peel, and grate the apple; add the rest and leave it all in the refrigerator for several hours, causing it to turn brown. Yes, it is supposed to turn brown.
