Haroset is a mixture of apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine. It is supposed to resemble a paste; its purpose is to remind us of the mortar used in Egypt to put bricks together. So – the quantities in this recipe are variable. The only important thing is the texture.
- 2 large apples, peeled and cored
- ½ cup walnuts
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tblsp. sweet red Passover wine
- 1 tblsp. honey (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth or almost smooth. If mixture is too thick, add a little more wine. If it’s too thin, add more walnuts. Serves 10-12.
