Passover Charoset Recipe: Haroset from Suriname

  • 7 oz package unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1 ½ cups raisins
  • 1 ½ cups dried apples
  • 1 ½ cups prunes
  • 1 ½ cups dried apricots
  • 1 ½ cups dried pears
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup cherry jam
  • Sweet red wine
  1. Combine in saucepan all ingredients except cherry jam and wine. Add enough cold water to just cover fruit. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally, and adding more water if necessary.
  2. Remove from heat; stir in cherry jam. Set aside to cool.
  3. Add just enough sweet red wine to be absorbed by the fruit. Refrigerate until well chilled.

Makes about 9 cups
