How I found Michael


This Sephardic Charoseth will be an exotic addition to your Seder. The Dates and Bananas help to create something so tasty you may choose to make this in a double or triple batch.
My son was forever begging for another Hillel Sandwich, minus the Horseradish of course.
8 ounces chopped Dates
1/2-3/4 cup Sweet Red Wine or Orange Juice
1 cup finely chopped Pecans
1 banana, mashed
1 cup grated, peeled Apple
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Cardamom
Place the Dates and 1/2 cup of the Wine in a small saucepan.
Cook and stir over medium heat, until a paste forms. You may need to add a bit more Wine to moisten until the dates are dissolved.
Remove from heat.
Add the other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Chill for at least an hour.
Stir, adding a bit more Wine if necessary, and serve.
