  • 1 C chopped apples Mom uses a couple of different apples to make it interesting.
  • 1/4 C chopped nuts We always use walnuts.
  • 1 t sugar or honey This is not a choice. Use honey!
  • Grated rind of 1/2 lemon I ended up using a whole lemon. The more lemon, the merrier.
  • 1/2 t cinnamon or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons red wine about (Don't go for fancy wine here. You want Manischewitz Concord Grape. I can't imagine charoses with any other wine. It's really an essential ingredient.)


  • Mix all ingredients.
  • Add enough wine to bind the mixture.
