Two Recipes for Charoset: {Kids Cook Recipe}

IMG_3907

Today I’m sharing two recipes for charoset. What’s charoset, you ask? It’s a mixture of apples, cinnamon, walnuts and wine customarily served during Passover. Below, I’ve included a “traditional” recipe using kosher wine and a revised, non-alcoholic recipe I came up with that replaces the wine with pomegranate juice for a super healthy alternative to the original.

A couple of tips and ideas before the recipes:

1. You can make these recipes by finely chopping the apples and crushing the walnuts before mixing them all together. Or, you can use a food processor to cut up the apple chunks and walnuts by pulsing slowly until you achieve the desired texture.

2. As per the usual, my teeny tiny sous chef helped me out in the kitchen. Below I’ve included photos of her helping out with the cooking last year (when she was a few months shy of turning 2) and this year. Last year, she helped by shaking up the pomegranate juice and crushing the walnuts in a sealed Ziploc bag. This year she measured out tablespoons of walnuts, poured all of the ingredients into the mini food processor and pushed the buttons.

    How many does this cater for during the Passover Meal? I am catering for a group of 50 people and I’m trying to calculate what quality I actually need. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Janet!

      Depending on the size of your apples, the traditional recipe will work for around 8 people during the Seder.
      Good luck!!

  3. 1. This sounds amazing! What do you serve it on? I feel like I could easily cook this over chicken or something like that, right?
    2. Umm I can’t handle the cuteness of little E helping you out in the kitchen! Its amazing how they change year to year…so sweet!

      Thanks Allison! It’s typically served with matzoh as part of Passover, but, I do agree that it could be yummy with a savory component like chicken.
      Haha! You’re too sweet! Thank you.
