Jewish cuisine is usually considered two things: 1) an oxymoron, and 2) holiday-specific. However, even though tradition is an ingrained part of the Jewish culture (see: Roof, Fiddler On the), one seriously amazing \u201cappetizer\u201d that my family has always made for every holiday is Haroset. By the way, you are pronouncing it wrong. Trust me. It\u2019s pronounced [Throat clearing CHH] + roses. In one of those rare instances of practicality meeting deliciousness, Haroset is a wonderfully sweet, chunky, apple spread that can transform even the driest cracker (also known as matzo) or bread into a tasty delight. It is very easy to make. And while it won\u2019t win any beauty contests, that adds to the mystique. Because after one taste, I\u2019m pretty sure that you will have a sweet new tradition for your holiday dinners for years to come.
