One of the traditional Jewish dishes always to be found at the Passover Seder is Charoses, a mixture of nuts and apples moistened with wine, to represent the morsel of sweetness to lighten the burden of unhappy memory. This is a very appropriate dish to be eaten on St. Martha's Feast Day, July 29th. Since Jesus told Martha to not worry about things, but to listen to His word, we should keep our meals simple on this day, and spend time outside of the kitchen to meditate on the Gospel.

This recipe can also be used for a Seder meal on Holy Thursday, to remember the Our Lord's Last Supper.

DIRECTIONS

Chop the nuts and apple together or run them through the food chopper. Mix with sufficient wine to form a paste. Add sugar and cinnamon.
