Monday Munchies...Passover Edition I

Tonight starts the Jewish holiday of Passover.  It is a holiday of freedom!  It's a very labor intensive holiday-not only during, but requires lots of prep and there are a lot of customs involved. 

One traditional food that we eat at the ceremonial seders (the festive meal that takes place during the first two nights) is called charoset.  It's placed on the seder plate and symbolizes the mortar that the slaves used to  make bricks in Egypt.  

We eat it with matzah during the seder, but it's also a great, healthy, tasty treat that can be eaten all throughout Passover.  

Traditional Charoset
6 apples chopped 
1 cup  chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/2 cup sweet wine 

Peel the apples, section, and chop in a food processor

Process the walnuts 

Add the chopped nuts and apples into a bowl with the wine and cinnamon 

What do you think you would enjoy charoset on?
