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!

  1. I just got the recipe from Delicious lunches, made it and loved it! I would love to put it in my lunchbox, but how do you prevent the apples from turning brown? I don’t think lemon is a good option here. Thank you!

    1. Put just a little bit of lemon juice in some water, and sprinkle it on the apples. It shouldn’t affect the flavor. Good luck!

  2. This sounds fabulous and I want to try it. I’ve got all the ingredients except the pistachio’s and grape juice…I have some apple juice…could I sub that with good results?

    1. You can definitely substitute apple juice. You could even use lemon juice or wine vinegar instead for a different flavor. Other nuts can be used too – walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, etc. Let me know how you like it!
