Harosets

Passover, the Jewish Holiday that celebrates Spring and the Jews’ escape from slavery, began last Friday. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the holiday, there are a series of symbolic foods that are eaten. One of these traditional foods is Harosets which symbolizes the mortar used to lay bricks when the Jews were enslaved in Egypt. Even if you are not Jewish, however, I recommend you try making Harosets; it is simple, unique and quite delicious. Simply chop up 5 Gala or Fuji apples, one cup of walnuts and ½ cup of dates in your CUISINART food processor. While the motor is running add ½ to 1 cup 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.
