Last year I shared my recipe for traditional charoset- and it was delicious. My gentile friends even ate it up! This year I stepped up my game with the addition of beets (say what?), dates (crazy!) and candied walnuts (mmm, sugar). All without sacrificing the necessary wine. Well let me pat myself on the back- this version is pretty darn tasty! The healthy beets balance the other ingredients and add an awesome red color to the mix, and the dates and candied nuts just sweeten the deal. And by deal I mean charoset.
