Haroset, or Charoset, is a staple treat of Passover. It is a paste of fruit and nuts that is served spread over matzah--a cracker-like flatbread made of flour. The food is meant to symbolize the mortor used by Isrealites to bond bricks during their enslavement in Ancient Egypt. It's a great way to remember and celebrate Jewish culture and history, and it also makes a healthy and tasty snack for kids.

What You Need:

  • 1 cup of dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 2 cups of fresh apples (peeled and cut)
  • 1/2 cup of juice (apple or orange Juice)

What You Do:

  1. Process all ingredients in a food processor. It should have a pasty texture. Add the liquids gradually to prevent the concoction from becoming too runny.
  2. Serve on a matzah bread (during the holiday) or serve with toasted bread or crackers at any other times.
