Amazingly nutty and fruity Haroseth recipe for your Passover table.
  • 1cup pecans, toasted and finely chopped
  • 1 cup dried figs, finely chopped
  • 2 cups finely diced just ripe unpeeled pears

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons kosher grape juice
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon
  1. In a glass or ceramic bowl, lightly toss the pecans, figs, pears and apple.
  2. Add the cinnamon, honey, wine, lemon zest and juice.
  3. Toss lightly to blend well.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
We used grape juice in place of Passover sweet wine.
You can go crazy with the fruits for this dish. Feel free to add dates, apricots, etc….
It’s important to keep the dish refrigerated for AT LEAST one hour as it will allow time for the different juices and flavorings to soak together.
