Charoses Recipie


          חרוסת recipe       

The שבלי הלקט writes to put into the חרוסת, some ground up earth or ground up brick for זכר לטיט.
This is based on the  "גירסא ברשב"ם פסחים קט"ז ע"א "וחרס שכותשין בו הדק זכר לטיט

The Birkei Yosef (Chida) quotes the Maharam de Lunzano who ridicules this שגעון. He says it came about
because of the wrong Girsa of  חרס instead of  חרוסת.

The Birkei Yosef  also quotes the Bais David who writes that the elders of Salonika testified on the Minhag in 
Salonika of grinding up a certain stone based on the Girsa of חרס in the Rashbam.
