JEWELED CHAROSES

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4 minutes
  • Serves: 8

This colorful Israeli inspired charoses is composed with pistachios, dried apricots and golden raisins to give a glistening "jewel" effect. 


Ingredients

3/4 c. pistachio nuts, shelled, roasted and salted

1/2 c. walnuts

1/2 c. dried mission figs, tough stem removed, halved

1/2 c. dried apricots, halved

1/4 c. golden raisins

1/4 c. dried cranberries

1/2 c. Pom pomegranate juice

1/4 c. Hai red wine for Passover

1 T. honey

2 t. lemon juice

1 t. cinnamon

1/4 t. fresh grated nutmeg

To Prepare

Toast pistachios and walnuts in a hot skillet until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Be careful that the nuts do not burn. Set aside.

In a large bowl, soak figs, apricots, raisins and cranberries in the Pom juice and wine for 15-20 minutes.

Transfer fruit mixture to the large bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Add nuts, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pulse until mixture is evenly chopped and liquid is absorbed. Add more wine or Pom juice if necessary.

Refrigerate until ready to use.

To Serve

Serve at room temperature with matzoh and cheeses.

Pair with Hai Cabernet Sauvignon.
