Charoset

Charoset is a traditional Passover dish. It has a place on the seder plate to represent the bricks and mortar over which the Israelites slaved while captive in Egypt.


It happens to be plant-based and delicious!


The traditional recipe calls for apples, walnuts, sweet red wine and cinnamon but I love to mix things up a bit. Here are two recipes I created for this year's holiday.


Date and Cashew Charoset:


Ingredients:

1 apple, peeled and large chopped (I used honeycrisp)

1/3 cup cashews

1/3 cup walnuts

4 dates, chopped

1/4 cup white wine (I used Pinot Gris)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Place all ingredients into a Cuisinart and pulse until finely diced.


Apricot and Pistachio Charoset:


Ingredients:

1 apple, peeled and large chopped (I used honeycrisp)1/3 c pecans

1/3 c pistachios

5 dried apricots

1/4 c white wine (I used Pinot Gris)

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp ginger

Place all ingredients into a Cuisinart and pulse until finely diced.
