Recipe by Zoe Millstein

Charoset is a sweet nut and fruit relish served at a Passover seder. Charoset comes from the Hebrew word cheres, which means “clay.” Hence, charoset symbolizes the mortar, or clay, that the Jews used to build the pharaoh’s buildings in Egypt. It is typically eaten on matzo, and is one of the traditional foods displayed on the seder plate. Chag sameach!
