For some reason my nice gentile wife was craving a good Passover dinner so she made the charoset and I made the matzo ball soup and brisket. I had to run to Ace hardware to get a clothes dryer vent hose and half way there was a call. Picture this she was on the phone batting her eyes asking me to stop and get some matzo. Don’t know what it is but it works every time, those eyes I tell you, I stopped at Shaws grabbed a box and headed home with a hose and matzo.
Not sure about you but the taste always brings me back to when I was a kid, the wooden bowl, curved red handle metal chopper and the job of making the charoset. I felt so important and then there was the taste testing.
