Apple charoset is a healthy side dish full of fruit and nuts that many people enjoy at a Seder. This chunky version is popular with kids and adults.
We’re going to an “evening of Jewish and Christian traditions” at our church tonight, and everyone was asked to bring a batch of apple charoset for a mini-Seder.
There are different varieties of charoset, but it’s basically a salad of fruit and nuts that’s traditionally eaten during the Seder meal. Some versions of charoset are in the form of a paste, but we made a chunkier version with a base of apples and dates. This is popular with adults and kids alike. Even though we aren’t Jewish, I’ll be making this again!
- 2 chopped apples
- 1/2 cup chopped dates
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup chopped pistachios
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/4 cup grape juice
- Chop the apples, dates, and nuts very finely, and place them in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, stir together the grape juice, honey, cinnamon, and ginger. Pour this over the fruit and nut mixture.
- Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.
