Posted by : Ruth Heiges

2 sweet apples weighing 1/2 lb (250 g), peeled and cut in small pieces
1/2  lb (250 g) dates, pitted
1 cup (150 g) raisins
Juice and grated zest of 1 orange
1 cup (250 ml) sweet red Passover wine
2 - 4 Tablespoons sugar or to taste (optional)
2 oz. (60 g) walnuts, coarsely chopped

Put all the ingredients except the sugar and walnuts together in a saucepan and
cook on very low heat until the mixture is soft and mushy and the liquid is
reduced, stirring occasionally. Add sugar to taste. The amount will depend on
the sweetness of the other ingredients. Blend to a paste in the food processor.
Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with walnuts.
