Parutherum (jaroseth)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient


~-Jewish, Cochin

½ lb Dark raisins

½ lb Date paste

¼ c Almonds, blanched

2 tb Sesame seeds

1 c Sugar

¼ c Wine vinegar

¼ ts Salt

1 c Water

1. Into a processor, put all of the ingredients and process together into a smooth paste. Put the paste in a pan and simmer over very low heat for ½ hour. Cool.

Serve at room temperature with matzoh at the Passover Seders.

NOTE: The date paste, for those who cannot find it already prepared, is nothing more than seedless dates ground to a paste with the smallest amount of water. I suggest ½ pound of dates and 3 tablespoons of water, processed together to smoothness.

A sweet and pungent jaroseth is unusual since other cultures do not use vinegar and therefore lacks pungency.
