This fruit and nut dish is traditionally served with matzoh during the Passover Seder to represent the mortar enslaved Jews used to build the pyramids. Though the ingredients vary depending on the family and the region from which it evolved, this particular version features fresh apples, nuts, dates, sweet wine, honey, and cinnamon. Ideally, the dish is made the day before so that the flavors have time to meld. The leftovers are a perfect addition to your morning yogurt! You’ll find the ingredients featured in our Passover-themed weekly sale from March 30th – April 5th — just in time for your Passover Seder!
Place the pecans and walnuts in the bowl of a food processor or chopper and pulse a few times until coarsely ground. Add the apples, and pulse a few more times. Add the dates, wine, honey, and cinnamon and blend until smooth. Spread onto matzoh and enjoy!
