Orange Ginger Charoset

Charoset is one of more popular and tasty symbolic foods on the Passover Seder Plate. It is a sweet, dark-colored paste made of fruits and nuts meant to mask some of the bitterness of the horseradish. The word "charoset" comes from the Hebrew word cheres, meaning clay. It’s color and texture are meant to recall mortar which the Israelites used when they were enslaved in Egypt. Like pretty much everything in Judaism, there are lots of different traditions depending on what part of the world one is from. Traditionally, the recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine. I personally like to stay true to traditions while simultaneously playing with new ingredients to keep things fresh and fun. The following recipe for charoset does just that! The recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine, keeping with tradition, but also incorporates, orange, ginger and mint to keep things new and exciting! Have fun and experiment this year! Wishing you all a Chag Kasher V’Sameach!

Semifreddo, which translates to “half frozen” in Italian, is very easy to make and keep. This is one Chef John Ash, the creator of this recipe, likes to make in the winter. For the puree, use frozen berries. Simply thaw and puree them, strain, and flavor to taste with drops of lemon juice and honey.

 

Ginger Chocolate Cookies

I love ginger bread cookies and when I saw a recipe that added in chocolate it was one of those aha moments. I made them for Thanksgiving and they were the hit of the party. Note that these are of course a special treat and should be eaten in moderation, but using whole wheat flour and two kinds of good quality dark chocolate does help a little with the nutrition value.
