Date-Nut Haroset

Yield 4 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
A part of every seder, haroset is a thick condiment that symbolizes the mortar the Jews prepared when they were slaves in Egypt. Recipes vary but typically include fruit, nuts, and honey. The marshmallows are a relatively new addition; you can find kosher-for-Passover marshmallows in supermarkets. Use the grating attachment on a food processor to quickly shred the apple. Prepare this up to a day in advance.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups whole pitted dates
  • 2/3 cup dried figs
  • 2/3 cup dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/4 cup kosher sweet red wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and shredded
  • 1/2 cup kosher miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

Cover and refrigerate at least for 2 hours or overnight.
