Charoset (huh-ROW-set)

My mother grinds the walnuts in the food processor but finely dices the apples by hand. Prep: 10 minutes.


Makes 3/4 to 1 1/4 cups

Recipe from



1 cup chopped apple (Gala or other firm, red variety)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon kosher red wine


Combine all ingredients. For a chunkier texture, chill until ready to serve. For a smoother texture, pulse in a food processor or blender until well blended and coarsely ground; chill until ready to serve, or serve at room temperature.
