Passover Charoset

I absolutely love this Passover sedar staple. It's wonderful on the sedar table eaten on some matzo, but is also great leftover as a side dish for lunch or dinner. This basic recipe would serve 2 people. For a big family dinner, I would suggest making 6-8 apples and increasing the rest of the ingredients accordingly. This is traditionally made with Mogen David sweet wine, but any sweet red wine or even grape juice would do.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop apple into very small pieces and mix with pecans.
  2. Add cinnamon and wine.
  3. Mix well and refrigerate.

Really yummy. Like the last reviewer I tried it with vanilla ice cream :-) I also halved the amt. of pecans, which was good as I ate the whole recipe myself. A new and interesting food for me!

We loved this! Dead-easy to make and it has a wonderful flavour. DH enjoys charoses with cream cheese on matzos and the children ate theirs over vanilla icecream. I will be making this often. Thanks for a great recipe, Karen.
