Whole Orange Italian/Greek Charoset

2 3/4 cups, packed charoset
Kosher Key: Pareve, Kosher for Passover
Total Time: 15 Minutes

1 medium seedless orange, well-rinsed, preferably organic
1 lb Medjool dates (about 22-24), pits removed
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp sweet (red) wine
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, toasted, finely chopped

Cut the orange into 6-8 rough pieces (do not peel) and place in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Add the dates. Process for about 15 seconds, or until a mushy paste forms but rough chunks of orange peel are still visible. Place the paste in a small saucepan with the sugar, cinnamon, and wine. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the chopped nuts.
