12 pitted dates
* 1/4 cup chopped, toasted pine nuts
* 3 tablespoons red wine
* 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper (optional)
* 1/4 cup honey
Stuff dates with chopped nuts: the nuts are inserted into the
space left by the pit.
Place dates in a small pan. Sprinkle with pepper if desired.
Add wine, then drizzle honey over dates. Cook over medium heat
until the skins begin to peel off the fruit. Transfer dates
to a serving dish, and allow to cool slightly before serving.
