Charoset, Syrian (P, KLP)
Source: New York Times, Adapted from Sarina Roff
Yield: About 1-1/2 cups

1 pound pitted dried dates
2 tablespoons sweet KLP wine
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Place dates in a bowl and soak in about 3 cups water, or to cover, for 2 hours.

Pour dates with their soaking water into a medium saucepan. Cover, and cook over a very low heat for about an hour, until dates are very soft, stirring often.

Push dates and any remaining liquid through a food mill so that they are smooth. Stir in the wine and cinnamon. Store in a jar and refrigerate until serving. To serve, sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
