DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the water in a pot until boiling, then add the dates and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the dates with a slotted spoon, cool and peel, then set aside. Reserve the cooking water.
  • Bring the reserved water to a boil, add the sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the raisins, cloves, and dates, and cook for 15 minutes over medium heat. Add the lemon juice and cook for another 5 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Place in fruit cups. Whip the cream until frothy, then spoon over the dates and sprinkle with pistachios before serving.
