Ingredients

  • 1

    medium seedless orange, well-rinsed, preferably organic

  • 1

    lb Medjool dates (about 22-24), pits removed and discarded

  • 3

    tbsp sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp cinnamon

  • 2

    tbsp sweet (red) wine

  • 1/2

    cup pecans or walnuts, toasted, finely chopped

Directions

Cut the orange into 6-8 rough pieces (do not peel) and place in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Add the dates. Process for about 15 seconds, or until a mushy paste forms but rough chunks of orange peel are still visible. Place the paste in a small saucepan with the sugar, cinnamon, and wine. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the chopped nuts.
