Charoset with Maror: Today's new food came to me as a complete surprise, which is always fun. Tonight, me and the GF attended a Passover seder at one of her friend's houses, and while I had tasted most of the food there previously, I spotted something new to me on the dinner table: charoset. It looked almost like granola from a distance, but after asking what it was, I learned that it was made from a mixture of finely diced apples, nuts, cinnamon, and wine. Based on the ingredients (which I've had individually), I know that the dish sounds like something that wouldn't count as new, but once I learned how it was traditionally eaten, I knew it would be a new experience for me.
