How about an exotic Persian charoset recipe (or Persian haroset recipe; also Iranian charoset recipe or Iranian haroset recipe) for the Passover / Pesach Seder? I thought you might be daring enough! Persian charoset recipes or Iranian charoset recipes will vary depending on individual family charoset recipes and on the availability of charoset ingredients where the Persian-Jewish/Iranian-Jewish family lives in Persia/Iran. A Persian charoset recipe / Iranian charoset recipe will usually contain many different kinds of fruits that reflect the variety of fruits available in one's location and that also makes for a healthy food that is rich in vitamins.

Persian charoset or Iranian charoset (it has many spelling variations in English from transliterated Hebrew such as Persian charoses, Persian haroset, Persian charoseth, Persian haroseth, Persian haroses, and Iranian charoses, Iranian haroset, Iranian charoseth, Iranian haroseth, and Iranian haroses) reflects the many fruits and spices of ancient Persia (since 1935, known as Iran). Persia or Iran is the world's largest producer of saffron, a very expensive spice.
