More than a recipe, charoset (also called haroset) is a symbol of Jewish cuisine. Like any symbolic dish of this tradition, charoset also has its own meaning and is compared to the mixture of mortar and bricks that the Jews used in Egypt when they worked for the Pharaoh. Charoset has several versions, but at the base of each are apples, dried fruit and red wine. Fine Dining Lovers presents its version of the simple charoset, which you can then enrich by adding raisins, dates, prunes, cloves and even chilli.

Step 01

chopping apples

Peel the apples well and chop them into small pieces (you can boil the scraps in water to create a sweet and delicious herbal tea or a refreshing drink).

Step 02

a mixing bowl with cinnamon and raw sugar and chopped apple

Place the apples in a bowl and add the cinnamon and raw sugar, then mix well.

Step 03

adding red wine to chopped apple mix

Add the red wine and let the apples macerate until serving.

Step 04

a finished bowl of charoset

Meanwhile, toast the walnuts and chop them coarsely. Put the macerated apples in a small bowl and garnish with the chopped dried fruit.
