- Charoset is one of the symbolic foods on the Passover Seder Plate. After reciting the blessings, and eating a matzah "sandwich" combining charoset and maror, the remainder is often eaten plain, spread on matzah. This traditional dish—essential at every Seder ceremony—combines chopped apples, raisins, and walnuts in a sweet, red sauce.
But you can enjoy this inexpensive treat anytime. It's so simple to make and keeps well in the refrigerator for a quick snack. Packed with nutrients, this is a sure bet to keeping a health lifestyle.
