Every Jewish community of the world has their own version of this symbolic Passover food. A quick look online on the topic of Charoset and as with all ‘jewish food’ you are left baffled. The common thread between them all is the use of fruit and nuts.
As tasty as Charoset is, and it is! (what can be wrong with a combo of dried fruit, nuts, spices, wine, juice or whatever your charoset may include??) It could use, however, a slight upgrade on the presentation front. Rolling the mixture into ‘charoset truffles’ coated with chopped walnuts worked as a charm for me.
Our Tanzeya is the base for this super simple (only 5 ingredients!) dried fruit & nut spread. The slivovitz helps balance the sweetness but feel free to replace it with another brandy you might have on hand.
Treat your host this Passover with a jar or two of our Tanzeya. Order today and we guarantee delivery in time for your holiday table.
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.) 4. 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 nuts. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
