Figs, dates, pomegranates and grapes were the only fruits that could be grown in the hot climate. From: Ancient Egyptian Food and Drink. This recipe was from 1600BC and was found on an ostraca. *NOTE* There are no times given but I'm thinking it would go pretty quickly with the food processor.
- mix the dates with some water to paste.
- mix in cinnamon and kardemon seeds.
- kneed in the walnuts.
- form balls, spread with honey and cover in the ground almonds.
