Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes

Charoset (haroset, charoses, or sometimes reffered to as halegh) is a chunky paste made of fruits and nuts for Passover. The sweet paste is great on matzo and is often used as a type of dip for the bitter herbs that are consumed during Passover. Here is a basic apple chariest recipe that can be embellished upon with other fruits or nuts.

Serves 8
Time required 10 minutes
Difficulty level 1
Cost of ingredients 6 USD

  • 6 apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup (165g) raisins, seedless
  • 1 cup (145g) almonds, unsalted
  • ½ teaspoon (1g) cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons (24g) sugar
  • 2 cups (240g) water

If using a food processor, add all the ingredients and blend until desired texture. If making by hand, chop apples as finely as you want and place in a bowl. Either chop or crush the almonds and add them in as well. Add sugar, cinnamon and water slowly to make it the consistency to your taste. Mix well then add raisins and stir to combine.

If you like your raisins to be chopped, feel free to do so. If you want to make it more of a paste, use the back of a fork or the side of a knife to mash the apple on a cutting board or the inside of a bowl
