As Deniese has said, "Home is where your heart is." Habitat understands that, for many families, the heart of the home is in the kitchen.

Habitat for Humanity has collected hundreds of recipes from Habitat affiliates all over the world, available in three great cookbooks. We thought we'd share a delicious recipe from these cookbooks each week. Try them out and let us know what you think! Or if you would like to submit your own favorite recipe for our blog collection, email Meagan at vista@nslchfh.org.

This week we share a recipe from a Seder Meal. Today is Maundy Thursday, the day Christians traditionally remember the "Last Supper". Jesus and the disciples gathered together and ate the "Last Supper" on the first night of the Passover festival, or during the Seder Meal. Passover is the celebration of God delivering the Israelites out of slavery from Pharoah, the Egyptian ruler.

Traditional Passover Seder accompaniment pronounced Har-row-set.
It is part of the traditional Seder ceremony.

Yield: about 10 servings

4 - 6 Medium chopped or grated apples
1 cup finely chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans)
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sugar or brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup sweet wine or grape juice
Wash, Core and if you prefer, peel the apples. Chop Apples (a food processor can be used ) to size smaller than peas but larger than rice. Mix nuts, sugar, honey, apples and cinnamon together until well-blended. Add wine slowly until the texture resembles a thick paste, like mortar. Taste and adjust cinnamon, sugar, wine amounts if you desire. It is OK for the apples to turn brown, but refrigerate and use before 3 days.
