Every family has their own version of making charoset; one of symbolic foods on the Passover Seder plate. Our Tanzeya is the base for this super simple (only 5 ingredients!) dried fruit spread. The slivovitz helps balance the sweetness, but feel free to replace it with another brandy you might have on hand. Traditionally, you wouldn’t roll the charoset into balls- but for me, it elevates the presentation of an otherwise not so attractive spread to a beautiful addition for the holiday table.

½ Granny smith apple, grated
½ cup chopped walnuts
¼ tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. Slivovitz (plum brandy)
-more chopped walnut for rolling
1. Finely chop the Tanzeya and mix well with the rest of the ingredients.
2. Refrigerate for about 1 hour, so it will be easier to roll.
3. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. (Shape the mixture into a little less then one-inch balls.) Then place the balls into a dish with the rest of the chopped walnuts. Move the charoset truffles in order to coat all around with the nuts. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
