Tiger Nut Sweets - Comments


Name: Martha Henchik 12th November 2009
I was making this with my daughter for an Egyptian Project, and to our horror, we forgot to take the seeds out of the dates. Do you think that you could state somewhere that if you do not have seedless dates, that you need to get rid of the seeds. We did not cut the dates, we used a (soon to be very sticky) food processer. Thank you for the recipie though. It was very helpful and full of information. Thanks!

(We have added this to the recipe, thanks for the comment - the Cookit team)

I was wondering what are dates because I'm cooking this for my egyptian project.
(Hi Amber we will be putting up a whole section explaining about different foods shortly. In the meantime here is a link to the section about dates: The Cookit Team.)

I believe that this recipe originated in Egypt. It was written on a clay bowl and I think only the wealthy ate them because the recipe requires cinnamon, which was not a common spice.

Can you swap raisins for dates? This would be tricky, you would need to make a kind of puree with the raisins to get them to stick together. Technically you could but you would have to experiment to get it to work.

I made these sweets for my class and they are brilliant!I do suggest though if you make these you put them in little cake cup cake cases because the honey somtimes soaked through the almonds and I had to give them another coating of almonds.

I recommend these sweets to any ages.
They are not to sweet and are reasonably healthy.
Most sweets aren't as good as these and are very high in nutrition.

Do these need to be refrigerated?
Name: Emily 4th June 2015
they need to be in the fridge overnight and then the next day they are ready to eat

What is the equivalent of 'one small jar of runny hunny'? Not everyone lives where you can whip unique products off the shelf.......... Frustrated.

We've made this snack for years now. It's a family favorite. We are not really walnut fans, so I substitute ground pistachios for the walnuts, and I love the way it tastes :)
