Charoset (Pareve)

Suibmitted by: Rosalind Rosenbaum

This delicious combination of wine, nuts, and apples is eaten at the Seder to commemorate the mortar which the Jews were forced to build with in Egypt. You can spread it on Matzoh, or eat it straight from the jar. (No double dipping!) There are many variations, here is a basic one.


  • 1 C. nuts (finely chopped)
  • 1 apple (grated)
  • dash of ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of brown or white sugar
  • sweet red wine
  • cinnamon to taste


Mix together nuts, apple, cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Add wine slowly until the mixture has reached a paste-like consistency. Adjust seasonings to taste.
