Haroset is a traditional offering at the Passover Seder. It’s slightly sweet and slightly tart, representing the mortar the Hebrews used to make bricks in their forced labor to the Egyptians.
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped dates
4 tablespoons apple juice
2 green apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
In a small bowl, soak raisins and dates in the juice for several hours or overnight. In food processor combine all ingredients together. The consistency may be as coarse or fine as you like. Makes about 3 cups. Refrigerate until use.
