Ashkenazic Charoset

Charoset is a delicious mixture that features in the Passover meal, the Seder. It symbolizes the mortar the Hebrew slaves used to bind the stones and bricks in their forced labor. Charoset is always a mixture of local fresh and dried fruits, moistened with sweet kosher wine. This is the charoset my Polish grandmother brought to our Seder table.
