Persian Haroset


Haroset is integral to the Passover Seder and just plain delicious. This classic Persian version is packed with fresh and dried fruit and four kinds of chopped nuts. Recipe provided by Raquel Segal of the Dix Hills (NY) Hadassah branch.


Prepare the Haroset

Makes 5 cups


Combine pear, apple, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachio nuts, dates, and raisins in a large bowl, and blend well, being careful not to chop the mixture into a paste. Add cinnamon, gingerroot, cider vinegar, and enough wine to bind.


Place on a platter and shape into a pyramid. Cover and refrigerate.
