Dates are a favourite fruit of mine. Sous Chef J isn't so keen but he will prepare some tasty treats from time to time. These are a perfect home made gift that I am always happy to receive.
10 Medjool Dates
20 Walnut halves
10 petit four cases
First of all, we remove stones from dates (if necessary) and open the date out a little. It's best to make the cut lengthwise in the date.
Next, two walnut halves are placed into each date.
Finally, we serve each date in a petit four case.
Variations: Dates can also be stuffed with whole, blanched almonds, pistachios or marzipan. Dipping them in melted dark chocolate also makes a delicious delicacy!
