      This was wonderful...I added a little more cinnamon and almonds. I will be making this again.

      I used frozen cherries for this recipe, and a little less honey. Didn't think the almond flavor came through, but everyone enjoyed it. Something just a little different.

      I made this for our seder this year, intrigued by the cherries. I love the cherry-almond combination. This is a delicious charoset, but in my opinion the cherries got lost. I mostly tasted apples and cinnamon, which was fine, but I didn't get the cherry-almond flavor as predominant. I used jarred dark sweet cherries that were in light syrup, and I used the cherry liquid in place of sweet wine. I used Gala apples. The next time I make this (for tonight's seder, perhaps?) I will use only one apple, and will add in at least 1/2 cup of dried sour cherries, and will add more liquid from the cherry jar if needed to balance the dried sour cherries. For those who are making this outside of Passover, I could see adding a few drops of almond extract to boost the almond flavor, too. Thanks, Oolala, and Chag Sameah!
