DIRECTIONS

  • Using a good chopping knife, begin to coarsely chop your piles of nuts, cherries and dates.
  • The dates will be very sticky, but just do you best to slice, and then cube them up.
  • Combine your piles and chop together.
  • It will be pretty rough at first, but just keep chopping and the ingredients will begin to combine and stick to each other.
  • Once the ingredients begin to stick together, use your knife to squish it into a single mass.
  • Chop up that mass and repeat.
  • The mass will continue to hold together better, and eventually your chopping will be more like taking slices off of the mass.
  • If at this point you feel your mix is still too dry, try adding another date.
  • Continue on until the mass reliably sticks together.
  • At that point, you will be able to knead it a couple of times using your hands.
  • Just fold it over on its self and mush down.
  • It will be a little sticky, but not too much.
  • Press it into a rectangular shape about 3/4″ high.
  • Using a clean knife, cut the mass into bars.
  • They can be wrapped in plastic wrap for later use.
