This coming Friday is the first night of Passover...and its Good Friday! We've got a big celebration planned as my parents are coming here and we are all, my brother and his family included, going to my in-laws' for a big sedar.
I am glad its a short week. It's Monday, but I can't really say we had a relaxing weekend around here. It was busy. Good busy, but busy. And Adam caught a bad cold and lost his voice and has to give a big talk today. He's pretty down in the dumps.
Our little pre-Passover party on Saturday was a hit though, and my charoset was an even bigger hit! I am thrilled since (1) I've never bothered to make it before, and (2) I didn't, as usual, use a recipe, I just made up my own.
The photo shows just the tiny amount that was left afterwards, and Adam polished the rest off yesterday.
Even if you don't celebrate Passover, its a yummy little treat and you don't need to eat it with matzo by any means. It would actually be awesome with Greek yogurt!
4 apples, grated (I used the food processor)
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 tbls lemon juice
2 tbls honey
2 tbls pomegranate molasses
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine all ingredients, stir together and serve. Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
