Traditional Jewish food served at Passover. Also known as delicious. Symbolizing the mortar used by enslaved Hebrews while building pyramids for the Egyptian Pharaoh, it is a spoonable conglomeration of apples, nuts, honey, and wine. An easy way to make it is to take all the apples you can find, peel and chop them in a cuisinart. Then add a large bag or two (depends on how many apples you use and your personal taste) of chopped walnuts and mix them together in a large bowl. (A fairly good proportion is 10 small apples for about a cup of walnuts.) Drizzle a few tablespoons of honey over the mixture and pour in not more than a glass or two of red wine. Add a pinch of cinnamon, mix well, and store in the refrigerator. As it is an old old dish, there are many variants, and the preferred combination of ingredients differs from family to family. Great by itself or in a Hillel sandwich. Someone else spelled it charosis.
