Moroccan style Charoset

There is an old pessach song that we sing in the seder, it basically suggests how you should feel around this time of year:

“Simcha raba, simcha raba” – Great joy, great joy

“Aviv hegia'” – Spring has arrived

“Pessach ba!” – Passover came!

Stop and photograph the flowers!  I took these pictures, while we were strolling around our neighborhood (Mid-Whilshire) this afternoon.

There are so many ways to make haroset but this one is my favorite. It’s not too sweet like other haroset recipes . I wish you a colorful and beautiful holiday.
