Israeli Charoset with Dried Fruit (Parve, Passover)


Charoset for the Passover Seder

Yael is making charoset for the Passover Seder

Giora Shimoni
At the Passover Seder, charoset is meant to look like and remind us of the mortar the Israelite slaves used in their building. This Israeli Charoset combines dried fruit - raisins, apricots, prunes - with fresh fruit, nuts and spices. Your Passover Seder guests will love the special additions to your charoset this year.
