This was delicious! This will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. This is a Sephardic type of Haroset.

Wonderful! I made the typical (for us) Charoset with just apple and walnut as well as this one. This one wins with everyone except my youngest who doesn't like rasins. Only change I made was to use grape juice rather than wine. I made it a day ahead and it was wonderful and still wonderful today for lunch. I may even make this one throughout the year. Thanks for posting.
