Unlike most haroset recipes, this one is cooked. Prepare it a day ahead so flavors can blend fully.
2 cups whole pitted dates
2 cups water
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
1/4 cup sweet red wine
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
How to Make It
Combine dates, water, and apples in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool at least 15 minutes.
Place apple mixture and wine in a food processor; pulse 5 times (mixture will be chunky). Add nuts; pulse 2 times to combine.
