Charoset Ice Cream for Passover

O.K. I have your attention. Yes, you've heard of Passover Brownies and Cakes, but Charoset Ice Cream? Tantalizing, yes! And, a perfect topping for your chocolate desserts! Unfortunately Charoset Ice Cream, a Ben & Jerry's Israel Limited Edition flavor is only available in Israel. This ice cream is a mixture of vanilla, apples, walnuts and honey. What's not to love?

Charoset is one of the symbolic foods on the Passover plate. It's made with apples, cinnamon, honey, and sweet wine. Charoses is a reminder to those at the Passover seder of mortar that their brick-laying ancestors made as slaves in Egypt.

I don't have a recipe for Charoset Ice-Cream, but you can always use vanilla ice cream and mix in some of your own charoses! Why not? Want to make sure you'll like it? Use your charoset as a topping!

I make Charoses from chopped apples (Macintosh), chopped walnuts, some sweet red wine, a bit of cinnamon, and some honey. I like it chunky, but if you're going to put it on ice-cream, maybe chop the nuts and apples finer. Make your Charoses ahead and refrigerate for best flavor.

Yesterday I posted several recipes for Passover Brownies. Check them out here! Charoset Ice Cream would be a perfect addition (if it's a dairy meal)... or for later. Passover doesn't mean going without great desserts!
