Apricot, Date, and Pistachio Haroseth

15 mins (prep 15)
10 ingredients
makes about 3 cups
Haroseth—a thick condiment of fruit, nuts, and wine—symbolizes the mortar the Israelites used in Egypt. Roberts’s particular mix of almonds, pistachios, dates, and dried apricots, reflective of the Middle East, is outstanding (note that we prefer the sweet-tart complexity of California/Pacific apricots to the bland sweetness of Turkish ones). Enjoy leftover haroseth slathered on matzos or crackers; we discovered it’s great with Manchego cheese as well.
