Charoset is a sweet, brown, pebbly paste of fruits and nuts, representing the mortar used by the Jewish slaves to build cities in Egypt. It’s traditionally served as a spread on matzo but it’s delicious on just about anything. I already have plans to have a big bowl of charoset oats this week and to try mixing the spread into plain yogurt. It would also be phenomenal as a spread for crackers or on a cheese plate.
As the only practising Jew in my house, I try and make the holidays a fun experience for Mr. Man and the kids. We jokingly refer to the seder plate as the Jewish hor d’ouvres plate. After trying many variations, a cooked, jammy-type Charoset is the winner. Great with cheese, matzah, fresh horseradish, etc. Happy Passover!
