Method

  1. Use the same ingredients as for the murabba tamar I recipe, substituting table dates for the cooking dates. Leave the dates unpeeled and wash well. Either push the date seeds out with a chopstick and insert walnut pieces in each date, or slit the side of the date to remove the seed and then insert a walnut piece.
  2. Combine 500 ml water with the sugar and dissolve over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the lemon rind, juice and spices and boil, uncovered, for 10 minutes without stirring. Add the prepared dates and return to the boil, then remove from the heat and set aside for 12 hours.
  3. Remove the dates from the syrup and place in a heatproof bowl. Bring the syrup to the boil, then boil without stirring for 10 minutes, skimming when necessary. Strain the syrup over the dates and leave until cool.
  4. Pack into sterilised jars, seal and store in the refrigerator.
