Haroset I

This Israeli version of Haroset is moistened with red wine and bound with matzo meal. It is reminiscent of the mortar on which the Jews worked when captive in Egypt.

3 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped

5 bananas, peeled and chopped

1 lb. dates, stoned and chopped

8 oz. groundnuts, finely chopped

1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 tablespoon grated lemon rind

1 tablespoon grated orange rind

4 fl. oz. dry red wine

8 oz. matzo meal

In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples, bananas, dates, groundnuts, cin-namon, ginger and lemon and orange rinds. With a fork or wooden spoon, mash them to a paste. Add the wine and stir it in well.

Add enough matzo meal to this mixture to make a stiff paste. Roll the paste between your hands to form small balls.

Arrange the balls on a plate.
