Iraqi Charoset is a dried fruit and nut based paste served during the Jewish celebration of Passover by Jews from Iraq.
- Boil dates in lightly salted water stirring frequently until it is a thick paste.
- Mix in finely chopped nuts.
- A traditional variant is to strain the pulp out of the paste producing a honey-like date syrup. This procedure uses considerably more dates and can take several days to produce sufficient syrup.
