  • 2 oz raw walnuts
  • 3 oz raisins
  • 4 tablespoons honey (80 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons marsala wine (or any dessert wine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Process the walnuts in your food processor until finely chopped, but not a paste.
  • Add the raisins, honey, wine and vanilla extract and process until fairly smooth.
  • Remove the food processor's blade and use a rubber spatula to give the charoset one more good stir, scraping the bottom, until well-blended. 
  • Transfer the charoset to a serving bowl. 
  • If not using the charoset the same day, cover and refrigerate, but remove from fridge 2 hours before serving and give it one final stir.



Recipe makes 3/4 cup charoset.
