A different kind of Holiday Dinner planning Day 2

As the day of the dinner approaches, parts are falling into place. A box arrived with plates, napkins and flatwear. Also the wet-naps.

So today slave made the Charoset so the flavors can blend.

Ashkenazi Style Charoset

This is the Charoset that is most familiar to American Ashkenazi Jews. 


  • ½ cup of crushed pecans
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored and chopped small
  • 1 Anjou pear pealed, cored and chopped
  • ¼ cup sweet red wine (MD 20 20)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup dried cranberries


1. Peal, core and chop the apples and pear into a large bowl.

2. Sprinkle well with the wine until coated.

3. Stir in the chopped nuts, honey, cinnamon, and cranberries. Cover and set in refrigerator overnight to blend flavors.

This charoset can be stored, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days. So make it ahead of time to save effort on that day.
