  1. Stuff dates with chopped nuts: the nuts are inserted into the space left by the pit.
  2. Place dates in a small pan. Sprinkle with pepper if desired. Add wine, then drizzle honey over dates. Cook over medium heat until the skins begin to peel off the fruit. Transfer dates to a serving dish, and allow to cool slightly before serving.

A little unusual at first, but very addictive. In the future, I'll just stir in the pine nuts. Stuffing the dates is what takes up all of your time.
