We always make traditional charoset in mass quatities because everyone loves it so much but I fine that Granny Smith apples have more character and a less mushy texture even when chopped up. Also, we lightly toast the walnuts or saute them in a little oil which eliminates any bitterness. Best is we've come up with a great, quick and tasty desert made with leftover charoset! So check the blog for the treatment: www.expendableedibles.com/blog .
