Recipe for Haroset sweetmeats (Middle East)

2 cups/350 g pitted dates
1/2 cup/75 g sultanas (I used golden raisins instead)
1/2 cup/75 g raisins
1/2 cup/75 g walnuts
pinch of cinnamon
1-2 tbsp sweet red wine (masala or port)

Put everything (but just HALF the wine) in food processor. Make a mixture that sticks together; you can add more wine so that it binds. Using clean, wet hands roll teaspoonfuls into small balls and put on a cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
