Charoset: A Passover Tradition

  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Quite possibly our favorite part of the Passover seder plate. Charoset is the perfect combination of walnuts, apples, cinammon, sugar and grape juice.


  • 16 oz walnuts (finely chopped)
  • 2 granny smith apples (peeled and chopped)
  • ½ lemon (juiced)
  • ¾ cups grape juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 56 tsp sugar


  1. Finely chop walnuts in your food processor. I use the pulse setting over and over again until it's evenly chopped. Place chopped walnuts into a bowl.

  2. Add chopped apples and lemon juice to your food processor and using the same setting, pulse until apples are diced. Add to bowl with walnuts.
