It's Rosh Hashanah!

Are some of you confused already? It's the Jewish New Year!

Glad we are all on the same page now.

The symbolic foods for this holiday are apples dipped in honey to represent the start of a sweet new year.

Today we are making Charoset! Mmm mmm good...

Charoset is traditionally a Passover recipe but it's a favorite of mine and I couldn't help making it early.

I want you all to give it a try and enjoy!

It takes 20 minutes max!

3 large apples peeled, chopped, and cored into tiny pieces. I personally love organic Fuji apples or red delicious.

1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts

1 & 3/4 teaspoons of honey or agave

1/2 teaspoon of white sugar

1/4 cup or less of a sweet red wine. I enjoy a nice Pinot Noir. If alcohol isn't your thing you can also use grape or apple juice.

Add a touch of cinnamon on top to give it a little flair.

You can plate some fresh spinach and add the Charoset on top for a sweet and scrumptious lunch.

Side note: I'm eating it as I'm typing this to all of you. :)
