4apples, such as McIntosh or Gala or Fuji, peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
2tablespoonssugar, or to taste
⅓cupsweet red wine, such as Manischewitz (see Note)
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon (optional)
1cupchopped walnuts or almonds(optional)
Place the apples into a food processor. Pulse a few times until as finely minced you like. If you don’t have a food processor, you can chop the apples by hand to the consistency you like and simply mix up everything in a bowl.
Turn the apples into a bowl and add the sugar, wine, lemon zest (if using), cinnamon, salt, and nuts (if using).
Serve the charoset with matzoh.
You can also use any red wine you have open, but taste the mixture, and if it is not as sweet as you would like, add a bit more sugar.
