DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the wine to a simmer.
  • Add the dates and poach until the skins blister.
  • With a slotted spoon, lift out the dates and, while warm, remove and discard the skins.
  • Cut open the dates on one long side, remove the pits and place two almonds in the center of each date.
  • Fold closed.
  • To the wine, add the honey, peppercorns, cloves, orange zest, allspice, cinnamon sticks and bay leaf.
  • Continue simmering until the wine is reduced by half, about 20 minutes.
  • Strain wine into a clean saucepan.
  • Add the dates to the wine and heat gently, over a medium low heat, until warmed through, but not hot, then remove from heat.
  • To serve, place a dollop of mascarpone in the center of each of four plates.
  • Spoon two dates and a little wine sauce on each plate, sprinkle lightly with sea salt and serve.
