Paradise or Eat-It-As-A-Main-Dish Haroses
This delectable haroses - the symbolic "mortar" used to sandwich pieces of matzoh together - is a new feature on my table.Apples, cranberries, raisins and cinnamon. No nuts. There are nut allergies in my home and I'm not fond of the traditional mixture. This haroses is bright, sweet and tart. Great any time with roasted chicken or turkey. One taste and you will see why it is called 'paradise' - (well, it is also catchier than calling it Promised Land Haroses !) - It is wonderful to have around Passover week as a spread on matzoh. It's fresh fruit taste and gorgeous scarlet color is just winning in all ways.
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup yellow raisins
2 cups coarsely chopped apples
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup water or orange juice
2 tablespoons sweet red wine - optional
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place everything in a medium saucepan. Over low-medium heat, cook the fuit slowly, until the apples soften and cranberries pop open. Stir (ensuring mixture does not burn on bottom -you may have to lower heat).
After it is cooked down and is thicker,adjust tartness to taste with more orange juice and sugar if you wish - or, if it seems too thicken, add a touch more wate ror orange juice. Cool well. Refrigerate after it cools down. Serve cold or room temperature.
Makes about 1 3/4 cups - this is used on the Seder plate and a side dish may be offered with the main meal.
