This recipe doubles well. Prepare it the morning of the seder, cover it well, and refrigerate.
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts, or a mixture)
5 small apples, peeled and cored
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons sweet wine, or more to taste
1 ½ tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1. Place the nuts in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse 2 to 3 times to chop. Remove to a small bowl and set aside.
2. Cut the apples into 1-inch pieces. Add to the food processor with the lemon zest, wine, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. Pulse 2-3 times until everything is chopped into medium pieces. Scrape the bowl as needed, making sure nothing gets lodged into the blade. Remove to a 1 quart bowl. Fold in the nuts, adjust the seasonings, then cover and refrigerate.
With a sharp knife, chop the nuts and diced apples into a 1 quart bowl. Add the lemon zest, wine, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger and combine. Adjust the seasonings, cover, and refrigerate.
