Make Charoset for the Seder

Make Charoset for the Seder


  • Ask your grown up assistant to show you how to use the peeler safely! Peel the three apples.

  • Grate the apples into a bowl.

  • Using the nut-cracker, crack the shells, and take out the nut.

  • Place the shelled walnuts in the nut grinder, turn the handle and grind.

  • Mix the walnuts into the grated apples.

  • Measure out four tablespoons of sweet, red Passover wine, and add it to the mixture.

  • Using your wooden mixing spoon, mix ingredients together till it’s a nice thick paste.

  • Place the Charoset mixture in the fridge to chill.

  • Remember to take it out and place it in the right spot on your Seder plate before your seder begins.

I am 12 years old. I can't have wine. (duh!) So we use grape juice instead of wine. I LOVE CHAROSET!!!! Reply

In our Sephardic culture our moms use raisins and cook them till they plump up then mix them in a food processor for a couple of minutes . And then top them of with diced walnuts . But this apple recipe looks delicious too ! Reply

In my humble opinion, the wine needs to be replaced by grape juice! Wine is not for kids! The Charoset comes out deliciously, too! Reply
