There is a spot reserved on the Seder Plate for this fruit paste, which is meant to recall the mortar the Israelites used to lay bricks in Egypt. Made from chopped dates and raisins, nuts, and wine, charoset stands out as the sweetest food on the Seder table. Courtesy of the Women’s Branch of the OU.
Cut dates and raisins in small pieces (spray knife with cooking spray to keep from sticking).
Put in bowl and add ground nuts, wine and spices.
