Eastern European Haroset (Ashkenazi)
Serves 8-10

3 large apples (sweet and tart like Fuji, Pink Lady, Gala), peeled and diced fine
1 cup walnuts, chopped fine
2-3 tablespoons honey or sugar
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ cup sweet red wine

Peel, core and dice the apples fine. You want small pieces of apple that can easily be scooped up with matzo.

Chop the walnuts very fine; it’s ok if some pieces are uneven and you have some “dust” from the chopped nuts.

In a bowl, combine the apples and walnuts. Top with honey and cinnamon, toss until well combined. Finally, add the wine. Mix until the wine coats all of the fruit and nuts.

You can cover this and allow it to rest at room temperature until ready to serve, or you can chill it in the fridge for several hours or overnight before serving. Haroset often tastes better the next day after it is made.

Add them to a bowl.] If the mixture has a hard time coming together, or seems to “dry” add
