Charoses is a reason to look forward to Passover. I would eat charoses year round, but then I wouldn’t enjoy it as much over Passover. I could eat it by the bowl – cold or hot. Charoses is almost always served cold, but it’s actually great after 30 seconds or so in the microwave – try it!
While I typically experiment and drastically change recipes, there is no messin’ with Momma’s charoses. Well, except for the fact that I used up this charoses in a Kosher for Passover charoses cupcake.
Mom’s charoses recipe is actually from The Complete American-Jewish Cookbook. As I look at this digital picture of the cookbook, I can picture the more worn out version of it sitting in Mom’s kitchen and feel all warm and fuzzy. If you want your own worn out version, you can get used copies of this book for only $4 on Amazon!
