"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
I found this recipe, ingredients only, in a bedside stand drawer by her bed after she was gone. Therefore I'm saying it was hers; because they sure taste like hers. The directions are mine but I'll bet they are real close to hers. I found out the hard way that you don't want to use the chopped dates you can buy. Buy the whole pitted date and coarse chop them.
