Recipe by  

"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."

  1. Stuff dates with chopped nuts: the nuts are inserted into the space left by the pit.
  2. Place dates in a small pan. Sprinkle with pepper if desired. Add wine, then drizzle honey over dates. Cook over medium heat until the skins begin to peel off the fruit. Transfer dates to a serving dish, and allow to cool slightly before serving.

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!

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.
