Ashkenaz Charoset

My sister-in-law’s grandmother, of Polish descent, makes the best charoset—it’s become somewhat of a legendary recipe for the extended family. When I called her, though, she told me that her recipe was never written down! I recreated this version based on her instructions


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 6 apples, grated
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/3 cup sweet red wine


Place the apples and walnuts into a large bowl. Combine the cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the apples. Stir in the sweet wine. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving.

    @Etti Shalom And HaG Peasch Kasher V’Samach The Haroset that I make comes from my Polish Great-Grandfather Elisha z”l receipe he always mixed grated red apples and green apples together with finely chopped walnuts. He/I mix in sweet Kiddush wine with powdered cinamon. As to the amount? I always make from 8 red and 8 green and it is a Bissen Katzat from this and from that because true Yiddishe cooking is dependent on the Baal Habus. ;-) Actually I have a large family and the Kinder go crazy over Saba’s Haroset!

  2. You are scaring me with this Rosh Hashana talk!

  3. This is similar to my moms recipe! The key is chopping by hand.
