Roman recipes
Date and nut dessert

By xxxx

A superb desert for any ocassion... similar it seems to Alexandrine Dates

Original recipe:



  • Fresh dates
  • Coarsely ground nuts
  • Stone-pine kernels
  • Salt
  • Honey, or red wine with honey


  • Take the stones out of the dates and fill them with the nuts or stone-pine kernels
  • Sprinkle a bit of salt on the filled dates and stew them in the honey or honey-sweetened red wine
  • The dates have to be cooked on a low heat until their paring starts to come off
  • Serve
