“These charoset balls are part of the Moroccan Passover tradition and are scooped up with romain lettuce at the seder. I received this recipe as part of a women's seder. The recipe can originally be found in the "Jewish Cooking in America" cookbook. Cook time does not include refrigeration time. Yield should be 3 1/2 C (system won't allow me to enter that). I have been told that there is no such thing as a sweet red wine (excepting the Mogen David line) and to use a zinfandel as the closest substitute.”
