Apple Beet Charoset

From Whole Foods Market


Serves 8

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.



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 ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt



In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients. Let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow apples and beets to soften and flavors to come together.
