Make the Charoset
In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, puree the dates, raisins, cinnamon, and a quarter cup of the hot water until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, gradually add up to a quarter cup more water until desired consistency is reached.
Refrigerate in an airtight container or jar for up to one week.
Assemble the Cheese Board
Start by placing the larger items like the cheeses and jar of charoset in different areas of the board.
Next, add fruit in piles, followed by matzah and crackers.
Add smaller items like nuts to empty spaces and finish with a garnish of basil or mint.
