Charoset and the Seder Plate Print E-mail

Charoset is made to symbolize the mortar, the cement that holds bricks together, that Isrealites made while they were enslaved in Egypt. It's eaten between two pieces of matzoh, which symbolize bricks.

Passover is a time to remember the enslaved people in the world--and there are still many. They may not be wearing chains, but their poverty and fear may be keeping them in horrible conditions, without any hope of escape.


{Makes 3 cups}

You'll need:

  • 2 tablespoons of red grape juice
  • 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled and chunked
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/3 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Sheets of Matzoh
  • A little adult help


  • A food processor or blender
  • A large spoon
  • A nice cereal bowl for serving
  • A plate or basket for the matzoh

      1. Don't do what we did. We put everything in a bowl first and tried to mix it. We also used too much grape juice at first. Skip all that.
      2. Just throw all the ingredients into the food processor.
      3. Process in 6 to 8 quick bursts.
      4. Ask mom to please help you take the blade out of the processor.
      5. Transfer the charoset to the bowl.
      6. Place the matzoh on the plate or in the basket and arrange near the Seder plate.
