"This dish of dates stuffed with chopped nuts is a 'home style treat' that was once savored in ancient Rome. You can replace the pine nuts with almonds if you prefer."

chopped, toasted pine nuts

This was kind of tricky to make. The dates are messy to stuff, and the next time I make them, I'll put them onto a dish lined with wax paper so that they don't stick so bad. These don't look too pretty, but they're very tasty.
Very good , everyone liked them. My only gripe is that they stuck to that pan and the plate ......... they needed to be pried off with a knife !
Maybe my ratio of honey was off so I will try again.
This was amazing! I didn't grind up the nuts -- just stuffed them in whole. Also used much less wine and honey than called for, and it was still plenty. I served this with little toothpicks stuck in and it was beautiful and delicious. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether this should be served as a side dish or dessert!
I give 5 * for flavour, but I'd deduct one * for the time-consuming preparations. We enjoyed these with the peppery honey glaze... it does lend a touch. Great, unusual snack!
so easy and so delicious. also did with maple syrup once instead of honey!
My friends and family LOVE these. I now have to keep dates on my shopping list as it is so often requested!
delicious, but I crowded the pan with too many and they were messy!
Definitely a super sweet treat (it's dates poached in honey, after all!), but it was so delicious! I made this with a friend and she stuffed the dates with the pine nuts, and apparently that was the hardest part about the recipe. Otherwise, it was simple, only calls for a few ingredients, and is a sweet accompaniment to a lineup of more savory bites to eat. Will make again.
