- Dried Fruit and Nut Mixture with No Added Sugar
Dried Fruit and Nut Mixture with No Added Sugar
Akin to a trail mix or to a fruit-only Christmas mincemeat filling, this unique fruit salad is inspired by a special Passover fruit and nut paste, called Harosset.
A mixture of chopped nuts, chopped fresh and dried fruits, red wine and spices, will result in deep, rich flavors which will intensify even further the next day.
It is highly recommended to soak the nuts in warm water overnight and roast them gently.
Sweetened by: fruit only
