Apple-Pear Charoset

Passover, the ancient Jewish festival of freedom, begins tonight. Here are the things you can bet on happening at the Seder I’ll be attending at my parents’ house:

-My mom’s brisket (braised with leeks and apricots) will kick serious ass.

-My dad will dramatically exclaim, “Oh snap!” when he describes the Red Sea parting.

-This Charoset, symbolic of the sweetness of freedom as well as the mortar used by the enslaved Israelites to build Egyptian cities, will likely inspire some skepticism, as it includes pears in addition to the traditional apples, and is made with Zinfandel, rather than sweet Manischewitz wine. But everyone will try it, like it and enjoy the Seder all the more.


4 tart apples (such as Granny Smith), peel intact, finely chopped $2
2 pears (any kind), peel intact, finely chopped $1.50
1/2 cup inexpensive red wine $4 for a bottle
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
3 tbsp honey Pantry
1 cup almonds, finely chopped $3.50

Recipe Serves 12


  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl until well-incorporated.
  2. Store in an airtight container until ready to use (mixture will keep for up to 2 days).

Just wanted to let you know that I would love to follow your blog but won’t because you don’t provide a full rss feed. I know a lot of people who use Feed Readers won’t subscribe to blogs that don’t provide full feeds and mostly we don’t even bother telling the bloggers that we’re purposefully not following their blogs. With that in mind, I thought I would just let you know. You should know.
