Passover - Harosets
Passover, the Jewish Holiday that celebrates spring and the Jews’ escape from slavery, begins tomorrow! 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, I highly recommend you get into the spirits and try making Harosets; it is simple, unique and quite delicious.
- 5 Fuji or Gala Apples
- 1 Cup of Walnuts
- ½ Cup of Dates
- 1 Cup of Grape Juice or Sweet Manischewitz Wine
To begin, chop up your apples and toss them into your CUISINART food processor along with the walnuts and dates. While the motor is running, add anywhere between ½ a cup to 1 cup of grape juice or sweet Manischewitz wine. Stop when a chunky paste is formed. Traditionally Harosets is eaten on Matzoh but it's also great served on crackers. Indulge and enjoy!
