    Annacia's Note:

    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.

      If one stupidly forgos one's stick blender :-) and tries to be authentic, it is not easy to make a paste out of dates. One has to admire the cooks of the day. The flavor is just wonderful...the cardamom seeds are a little burst of concentrated but delightful flavor. I made mine tiny--marble size--because they are really an intense sweetmeat.

      Excellent! The taste is wonderful. I totally forgot to buy almonds so mine were a little sticky without the coating but that's my fault entirely. The combination of walnut and dates was inspired and we loved these. The honey gives a touch of sweetness and after a quick burst with a stick mixer these were ready in next to no time. Please see my rating system: an excellent 5 stars for a recipe where flavours come together and make magic. Thanks!

      My daughter made these for a project on ancient egypt. The kids in her class liked them. I thought they tasted like the filling from a date square. They were easy to make but I made them quite small. I got about 30 small round balls. Thanks for the recipe.
