Ashkenazic Charoset

Charoset is a delicious mixture that features in the Passover meal, the Seder. It symbolizes the mortar the Hebrew slaves used to bind the stones and bricks in their forced labor. Charoset is always a mixture of local fresh and dried fruits, moistened with sweet kosher wine. This is the charoset my Polish grandmother brought to our Seder table.

ingredients

makes 1 cup
1 large sweet apple
1/2 cup mixed shelled nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, and pecans)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
about 2 tablespoons sweet red wine

method

1. Peel and core the apple, then grate it.

2. Grind the nuts. In a bowl, combine the grated apple and nuts, then add the spices.

3. Stir in the wine; the mixture should have the consistency of a paste. If it is too liquid, add some more grated apple.

4. Put it in a small bowl and place it on the Seder table.
