Moroccan Charoset
Moroccan Charoset


2 lbs. organic Medjool dates (can find at Costco and Trader Joe’s)
1 Honey Crisp or Red Delicious apple
1/2 cup sweet red kosher wine (Manischewitz or Mogen David)
Few shakes of cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Cut open dates and remove pits. Cut each date into quarters.

Peel apple and cut into small pieces.

Using food processor, pulse about 1/4 of the dates with part of apple and wine. Continue adding dates, pieces of apple and wine until desired consistency. You will want mixture to be dense and some chunkiness for texture.

If food processor becomes stuck because of density of mixture, add a little more wine and peeled apple chunks. If too much liquid, cut back on amount of wine added. If needed, remove processed mixture and place in bowl. Keep processing more of the dates, apple and wine, and continue adding to mixture in bowl.

Once all the ingredients have been processed, add cinnamon.

If desired, add chopped walnuts and mix thoroughly. In the case of a nut allergy, this recipe is delicious without nuts. You may also make using other kinds of nuts, such as pistachios or pecans.
