Recipe type: Dolce
Serves: 5 cups of Haroset
  • 1 cup golden raisins, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • ½ cup dark raisins, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • 6 dried figs, ends trimmed and and minced
  • ½ cup of dried apricots, minced
  • 6 dates, pits removed and chopped
  • 1 cup lightly toasted skinned almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup lightly toasted pine nuts
  • 2 Tbs of Kosher for Passover Liquor or Grappa
  • Grated rind from one large orange
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ to ¾ cup of superior quality honey
  1. Combine the prepared fruits and nuts, add the orange juice, orange rind, and Liquor. Mix together well, the dates will break down to a paste like consistency and act to bind the mixture.
  2. Once thoroughly combined, begin to add the honey starting with ½ cup. The amount you need will depend upon the plumpness of the fruit, especially the dates. You want a paste that holds together nicely and can be taken easily with a spoon. Additional honey may be added once the mixture sits for a day or two.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
