DULCIA DOMESTICA (Housemade Dessert)

(Apic. 7, 13, 1) Ingredients:

  • 200g fresh or dried dates
  • 50g coarsely ground nuts or stone-pine kernels
  • a little bit of salt
  • honey, or red wine with honey (to stew)
  • ground pepper

Take the stones out of the dates and fill them with nuts or stone-pine kernels and ground pepper. Sprinkle a bit of salt on the filled dates and stew them in honey or honey-sweetened red wine. The dates have to be cooked in on low heat until their paring starts to come off (approximately 5-10 minutes).
