Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup hazelnuts
  • 1 cup whole pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup whole blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons sweet red wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 cup shredded peeled Granny Smith apple (about 8 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup sliced banana

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place hazelnuts on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, stirring once. Turn nuts out onto a towel. Roll up towel; rub off skins.

Combine hazelnuts, dates, almonds, raisins, and golden raisins in a food processor. Process until ground, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. (Mixture will be thick and crumbly but will hold together when pressed.) Add wine, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves; pulse 4 times or until combined. Add apple and banana; pulse 4 times or until combined. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
