Passover for Everyone
Passover is the Jewish Holiday celebrating Spring and the Jews’ escape from slavery. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the holiday there are a series of symbolic foods that are eaten. One of those traditional foods is Harosets which is eaten to symbolize the mortar that was used to lay bricks when the Jews were enslaved in Egypt. However, even if you’re not Jewish I recommend you try making Harosets; it’s simple, unique and quite delicious. Simply chop up 5 gala or fuji apples, one cup of walnuts and ½ cup of dates in your food processor. While the motor is running add ½ to 1 cup of grape juice or sweet Manischewitz wine until a chunky paste is formed. Traditionally Harosets is eaten on Matzoh but you can enjoy it on crackers. L'Chaim!
