cook time:
2 h 15 min
Medium apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped 3
Walnuts, finely chopped 1.5 Cup
Sweet red wine 1/2 Cup
Honey 1/4 Cup
Ground cinnamon 1 Tsp
Ground cloves (optional) 1/4 Tsp
A pinch of salt
Step 1
In a large bowl, combine the finely chopped apples and walnuts.
Step 2
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the sweet red wine, honey, ground cinnamon, ground cloves (if using), and a pinch of salt.
Step 3
Pour the wine mixture over the apple and walnut mixture, stirring well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly coated.
Step 4
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the Haroset for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. This will allow the flavors to meld and the mixture to thicken.

Before serving, give the Haroset a good stir to redistribute any liquid that may have settled at the bottom of the bowl.
Step 6
Serve the Haroset as a part of your Seder plate or alongside matzo for a delicious and symbolic Passover treat.
