Haroset is an intrinsic component of the Passover plate, a condiment made from fruit, nuts, and wine. It symbolizes the mortar used by the Jewish slaves to build ancient Egyptian cities. Sephardic haroset is made in various ways, but usually contains dates. This makes about 2 cups, which goes a long way at your Passover table. Photos by Evan Atlas.
