Haroset, also known as Charoset, is a condiment made with fruit, nuts, and seasoning and is traditionally served with matzoh during the Passover Seder. This 5-minute recipe is ready quickly and is a delicious addition to Seder.
What is Haroset?
Haroset is slightly sweet and slightly tart, representing the mortar the Hebrews used to make brick during their force labor to the Egyptians.
While ingredients vary by region, this recipe is inspired by Ashkenazi traditions and is made with fresh apples, walnuts, honey, and cinnamon.
For me, I wish for leftovers because it’s a delicious snack and is a treat when mixed into yogurt.
Specific measurements are in the recipe card below. Here’s what you need:
- Raisins: which will be soaked
- Dates: pitted and chopped
- Apple juice
- Apples, peeled or unpeeled and chopped
- Walnuts, chopped
- Ground cinnamon and honey (or granulated sugar if you prefer)
How to Make Haroset
There are two way you can make Haroset. The first version is to presoak the raisins and dates in apple juice before combining the remaining ingredients before serving.
The second way is by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl and letting it soak for 30 minutes. Either way, it takes about 5 minutes to prep this delicious condiment important to the Passover Seder.
