Also spelled as charoset, this traditional dish is a crunchy, not-too-sweet mixture of apples, nuts, and wine that’s delicious sandwiched between matzo. It is an integral part of the Passover Seder plate representing the mortar made by the ancient Israelites when they were slaves in Egypt under Pharaoh, and it is also appropriate for a Rosh Hashanah meal. Jewish communities around the world have their own unique versions of haroset based on the ingredients that were available to them. This recipe can be made a day or two ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The mixture will turn brown the longer it sits but the flavors really blend well.
