Although I'm not Jewish I do go to my in-laws' Seder every Passover and partake in their traditional foods, so when I saw this recipe I was overjoyed! I love Charoset and it never occurred to me to look up the recipe on Zaar. I halved the recipe except for the wine and the cinnamon. I also used cream sherry as my red wine. This recipe is spot on and delicious! Of course I didn't have any romaine lettuce or matzo in the house, however I will pick some up later when I go out! Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag 2009.
