I've been tasked with making the charoset for my family's seder this year. But I'm tired of the same-old-same-old. Got any recipes you love?

While we all do dig it, traditionally we've always done the apples-walnuts-honey-cinnamon-wine variety.

I've found plenty of recipes online--too many. Anyone got one they've used, eaten, and loved?

New recipe? Surprise twist? Unexpected add-in? I'm all ears!

There was just a thread on this.

Ugh. Sorry. I searched, but it's no wonder I found nothing given the number of possible spellings. Damn Sephardim!

And I was stipulating people share recipes they know and liked--not merely ones they found.

For some reason I'm thinking a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds would be great.

And don't skimp on the cinnamon, please!

Lots of Ashkenazim avoid sesame seeds during Passover, considering them kitniyot.

sourwookie, I'm sure you know whether your family will object to them; just adding this note for anyone who uses this thread in the future.

My charoset is just the yummiest!!! Granny smith apples, dried apricots, orange zest, a few prunes, apricot brandy, concord grape Manischewitz, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Finely chop everything and don't skimp on the brandy and don't eat too much either... Happy Pesach!

We added raisins this year, and it worked out very well.
