      Title: Charoset
 Categories: Condiments, Jewish
      Yield: 2 Cups
 
  1 1/2 c  Nuts, finely chopped
           -(e.g., almonds, walnuts,
           -filberts)
      2 tb Sugar or honey (or a
           -mixture)
    1/2 ts Cinnamon
      2 c  Apples (or less),
           -chopped or grated
           -(about 4-6 medium
           -apples)
           Sweet wine

  well-blended. Add wine slowly until the texture resembles a thick

  NOTES:
  
  *  Traditional Seder accompaniment -- This paste-like, sweet spread
  is a prescribed part of the traditional Seder. Its mortar-like
  consistency is intended to remind Jews of the bricks and mortar our
  ancestors labored with as slaves in Egypt. Quite incidentally, it is
  delicious and tastes wonderful spread on matzah. This is the
  traditional charoset from the Ashkenazic (Eastern European) Jewish
  tradition; very different, but equally delicious, charoset recipes,
  using such ingredients as dates, raisins and sesame, can be found in
  the various Sephardic communities (e.g., Yemenite, Persian, Turkish,
  Moroccan, etc.).
  
  *  This recipe yields about enough for the Seder table. If you like
  this as much as we do, you will want to make more.
  
  *  Some people prefer a chunkier, less smoothly-blended charoset.
  
  *  If you live in an area where Kosher for Passover ground nuts (not
  groundnuts) are available, they save a lot of chopping time and lead
  to a smoother consistency. If you're lucky enough to have a Kosher
  for Passover food processor, you will also save a lot of arm
  exercise. And remember, kids love to chop!
  
  : Difficulty:  easy.
  : Time:  20 minutes to several hours, depending on how much
  hand-chopping you have to do.
  : Precision:  no need to measure.
