1.  The day before you make the haroset bites, place the raisins, dates, cranberries, apricots, cinnamon, wine & lemon juice in a lidded bowl......

2.  Place the refrigerator & allow the fruit to macerate overnight & absorb the wine.

3.  The following day, preheat your oven to 350º. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer & toast them for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven & allow the nuts to cool for about 5 minutes.

4.  In a food processor, pulse the walnuts until well chopped.

5.  Add the macerated fruit to the walnuts & continue pulsing until you have a coarse paste develop. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

6.  When the haroset mixture is firm, it is time to roll the bites......first, though you will need to grind the almonds in a food processor until finely ground, but not powdery. Pour the ground almonds in a shallow bowl & set aside.

7.  Use a teaspoon to scoop the haroset. You should should approximately a heaping teaspoon, & with wet hands, roll the haroset "dough" into a ball, then roll in the ground almonds......repeat until all the haroset is used......refrigerate until ready to serve......enjoy!

Cooks' note:
...you can substitute kosher grape juice or wine for the red wine, but it will be a little sweeter...
...I prefer Meyer lemons in this recipe as the Meyer lemon imparts a orangy-lemon taste which really works well with the dried fruits...
...makes about 36-40 haroset bites...
