Fig, Date and Pomegranate Filling
Spiked with orange zest and with zing from the pomegranates, this filling is also naturally sweetened by the dates and figs. Both dates and figs are prominently featured in Israeli cooking and taste great even in March when fresh local fruit is limited.
- 1 packed cup pitted dates
- ¼ cup dried figs
- 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup pomegranate or orange juice
- In a food processor pulse together all the ingredients until it reaches a smooth, jam-like consistency. If it’s too dry, add more juice until it comes together.
