This was in our local paper at Passover time. I like to taste different charoset and this definitely has a twist. Times are guesstimates.

Used the almonds, dried Fuji apple chunks & substituted some red grape juice for the red wine! We enjoyed this very much & will be making it again ~ I'm looking for a time when I can make it with the wine, but for the moment, it's a non-alcoholic version!
