Eastern European-style haroset (sometimes spelled charoset) is a sweet condiment served as part of the Passover Seder served with matzo. It's made essentially of apples, walnuts, and wine; proportions may be varied to taste. One of the important symbolic dishes of Passover, it represents the bricks used by the Jewish slaves to build Pharaoh's cities. This makes about 2 cups and goes a long way as a spread for matzo.

נאוה, המתכונים נפלאים, אבל את לא כותבת לכמה מנות הם מתאימים...
Nava, your recipes are great... But you don't say for how many servings they are.... At least I can't see it...
Thanks, Ofra, and Chag Sameach to you, too! It does say that it makes 2 cups. It's hard to say how many servings, as some guests might have a mere tablespoon, others, a quarter cup. But I'd say that this safely makes 8 servings. Hope that helps!
Can you use sweet Passover grape juice if unable to use alcohol? And can you use sugar instead of sweetener?
Hi Shannon yes to both questions. Most importantly, it needs to please your own palate! For the photo shoot a few weeks ago we used pomegranate juice instead of Passover wine, as I generally don't keep it laying around, and it was really good that way. Enjoy!
