And the lawmaker has one other Passover trick up his sleeve. Word is Israel “is famous” for his homemade charoset — a fruit and nut mixture that’s a staple of a Passover Seder.

But the charoset recipe is apparently a tightly guarded secret. When we asked if we could share it with our ITK readers, Israel said through his office that he’d only give his recipe “once you produce your classified clearance.”

So much for government transparency!
