Tonight is the first night of Passover and Pat can't wait to dive face first into this yummy charoset recipe on the sedar plate! Charoset represents the mortar that the Israelites used to bond bricks when they were kept as slaves in Egypt. Charoset can be enjoyed with matza or by itself! Pat hopes you try this recipe no matter what you celebrate since it's that good!
