Traditional charoset made perfectly in a Vitamix.Apples, Cinnamon, Raisins, Walnut,
From The Fiancee (Shalva):
Let’s first talk general tips, and then move onto Vitamix processing-specific ones.
You can leave the skin of the apples on or remove them based on your preference for consistency. We leave them on for extra nutrients and color.
If there are a couple of larger pieces in the container, remove them and re-blend with the next batch (just as you would with a food processor).
The pulse feature will help you get the exact consistency you are looking for, but be careful not to leave your finger on the button too long. Otherwise you'll have Passover applesauce.
This charoset recipe makes a big batch (everyone's gotta have some at the Seder), but it can easily be halved.
If refrigerating and not serving right away, you may want to pour out some of the liquid that will collect at the bottom. (Or drink it, it's delicious cinnamon apple wine now!)
This is a traditional dish, but every family does it differently. Many charoset recipes don't include the raisins, but in our family, we do!
