Charoset is the food that represents the mortar used for bricks during the time of the Israelite slaves in Egypt, whose freedom is celebrating during the Passover holiday.
My grandmother was an excellent cook, and several of her recipes have become legend in our family and others. This charoset recipe is one of them, because it is fun to make, and the results are totally based on taste. That means you have to taste the charoset as you make it. This is a great recipe to make with children, grandparents, and frankly just about anyone at any age has fun making charoset.
This recipe is from the Ashkenazic Jewish tradition. Sephardic charoset recipes are quite different from this one.
Yes, we pretty much hog this stuff during Passover. That is enough for the entire year. Almost time to make it. :)
Getting geared up for Passover. It's early this year!! I wait all year long for Charoset.
Good question. Maneschewitz concord grape is a sweet red grape wine.
Is that a red or white wine that you use? dry or sweet ?
i've never heard of charoset - sounds good though, must say I really like a lot of Jewish recipes! If it wasn't for the bans on seafood and pork I'd have been a convert!
@BrendaReeves Never heard of Passover or charoset?
I celebrate passover and love your bubbies recipe. Looking forward to enjoying it. I am also looking forward to lent, I always feel so good to fast during lent.
I was married to a Jewish man for 26 years and never heard of this.
