How to Make Charoset

Nuts and Dried Fruit make a delicious charoset, a traditional Passover dish symbolizing the mortar* that is a quick and easy recipe that goes on the seder plate. 

Usually, I make my charoset with an organic apple, dried fruit such as dates and nuts like almonds. Since I was out of apples and did not want to go to the store to shop, I created a new recipe variation with almonds, dates, dried apricots and a touch of cinnamon. Delicious!

The following morning, I added some charoset as one of my toppings for my breakfast bowl on top of yogurt. Along side cacao nibs, and chia seeds, you can see it from the photo above!

Like many of my friends, we wonder why we do not make charoset more often during the year.

You might also check out this video for my original charoset recipe. Feel free to improvise and create your own variation with different dried fruits, nuts with or without an apple.

Happy Passover!

Here is a TV appearance I did back in 2014 with quick and easy recipes for Passover. Please watch and enjoy!
