Hawaiian Charoset

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

Most people make charoset for Passover using the same recipe that people around the world have used for thousands of years -- apples, walnuts and wine. This is a Faye Levy that takes fusion cuisine to a whole new level. This is certainly going to be the charoset on my table this year!

Mmm, mmm, good! I made this for a gathering and everyone loved it. I wasn't sure how it would taste (great) but it reminds me of traditional charoset. Maybe it is the texture or the sweetness. I didn't have any sweet red wine (and wasn't buying the big bottle this far from Passover) so I used some white zinfandel and it worked just fine. Didn't use the banana. This is a great snack food. Thanks!
