It is good to know that all fruits are kosher for Pesach (Passover). Alas, beer is not.
But a question I have for anyone knowledgeable out there is:
How can apples be a traditional ingredient in the Ashkenazi versions of charoset? Apples, after all, are a fall fruit, and Pesach comes in spring in the northern hemisphere.
Now, the Sephardi traditions use dates and figs, which are well known in the Middle East (as apples were not, historically, despite various mis-translations). Dates and figs thus make sense (although figs are not ripe in spring, either, so I assume, like dates, one uses them dried). But apples–fresh apples–in spring?
