DIRECTIONS

  • Halve and core the unpeeled fruit and place in a large, heavy saucepan.
  • Caste iron is good.
  • Add the dates, apple juice and ground cinnamon.
  • Cook over very low heat, stirring occasionally for 4 to 6 hours, or until the mixture forms a dry paste.
  • Scrape into a bowl and cool, then roll the mixture into bite size balls.
  • Toast the nuts under the broiler until golden.
  • Coat the balls in the nuts.
  • Twist each ball into a candy wrapper or cellophane; plastic wrap can be used.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Variation: Use half ground cinnamon and half ground ginger instead of the 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
