Make your Own Horseradish and Charoset

Happy Passover and Happy Spring Everyone! Once you see how quick and easy it is to make your own grated horseradish and charoset, the nut and dried fruit dish that is part of the seder plate, I hope you will make your own.

Add a little vinegar to calm the heat. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more vinegar to cool it down.
