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.
