Prep time: 20 mins
Makes 4 cups
Recipe by Nina Atlas.
6 large apples (variety of kinds)
1 large lemon
1 cup walnuts pieces
3/4 cup pecan pieces
1/4 to 1/3 cup sweet passover wine
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Peel, core and slice apples. Place them in a bowl and squeeze juice of entire lemon over them. Toss and set aside. Place walnuts and pecans in a baggie and let your kid smash them with a rolling pin or the back of a hard spoon until the pieces are very small. (Fun!)
Place 1/2 of the sliced apples in a food processor and chop until small but not puréed. Coarsely chop the rest of the apples by hand and combine both the coarsely chopped and processed apples in a large bowl. (This gives the charoset a really great texture.) Add nuts, wine, sugar, honey and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Can be served immediately, or for an even bolder taste, let sit in the refrigerator overnight.
