New England Haroset

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.
