Haroset is one of the most important food components of the Passover seder. Its intense sweetness symbolizes the optimism in contrast to the bitter maror and salty water, which remind us of our ancestors’ suffering.
Every family has its own special haroset recipe, and each year my mother makes ours, which is passed down from my grandmother. Our family recipe includes dates, sweet kiddush wine and lots of cinnamon. It’s delicious and I always spend the majority of my seder making matzah and haroset sandwiches.
Still, there is always a big tub left over, and no one ever really thinks to use it once the seders have passed.
This year, I’ll be using our leftover haroset to make this chicken recipe. The beauty of this dish is that it works no matter what type of haroset your family makes. The sweetness from the haroset creates an addictive caramelized effect on the chicken.
