A bit of grated beet adds a unique, colorful touch to this classic Passover condiment, a fruit and nut chutney that actually deserves a spot at any table any time! Serve with roasted meats or vegetables, and don't fret if there are leftovers; charoset is tasty on a toasted sandwich, with or without Irish cheddar cheese.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 Gala or Fuji apple, peeled and grated
  • 2 medium beets (about 1/2 pound), peeled and grated
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, almonds or pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons wildflower honey
  • 2 tablespoons juice and 1 teaspoon zest (from 1 orange)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
Method: 
In a large bowl, stir together apple, beets, walnuts, apricots, honey, orange juice, zest, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow apples and beets to soften and flavors to come together.
