Charoset Recipe

Each year for the past 4-5 years, my amazing hubby has planned, executed and hosted a Good Friday service at our church called "Experience the Passion." One of the things that I've helped him make every year is an apple dish called "Charoset", pronounced Hahr-oh-set. It is supposed to be like the bricks and mortar that the Israelites laid in ancient Egypt. It does kinda look like that... but to me it is what Easter tastes like... in addition to ham and hard-boiled eggs!

Here is the recipe that we've made for the Good Friday service:

1 1/2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples (approx. 2 large apples)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp grape juice
1 cup chopped walnuts

*1/2 cup raisins, optional

1. Peel, core and chop the apples with a knife or in a food processor (not too long, you'll get applesauce! You want it chunky.)

2. In a medium bowl, add apples and all other ingredients, mix together with a spoon.

*Tastes great with Jewish matzo crackers!

*We triple this recipe for a bite for several hundred people, and always have leftovers. It tastes great as a side at Easter dinner, it is a part of the traditional Passover feast. There are lots of similar recipes online, but this is the easiest for us to make!

Let me know if you try this recipe, I'd love to hear your review!

Exodus 12:27
then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.’” Then the people bowed down and worshiped.

Numbers 9:3-5

 Celebrate it at the appointed time, at twilight on the fourteenth day of this month, in accordance with all its rules and regulations.
So Moses told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover, and they did so in the Desert of Sinai at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. The Israelites did everything just as the Lord commanded Moses.

Matthew 26:2
“As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”
