New England Haroset

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 3 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Local ingredients have long influenced haroset recipes. In New England, cranberries and maple syrup are natural additions. The Concord grapes used to make sweet kosher wine are also a local specialty. Use good-quality maple syrup, because its subtle flavor shines in this unspiced recipe. Use Granny Smith or Gala apples, or a combination of the two. You can grind the walnuts in a food processor.


  • 3 cups finely diced apple (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, minced
  • 1/4 cup Concord grape kosher wine (such as Manischewitz)
  • 4 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup ground walnuts
