Nuts & Date Honey Haroset

A tremendouse recipe of my late aunt that has been passed down from one generation to another. During my life, I have tasted variety of harosat types, and really think that the this one is the tastiest and richest in flavors. MaybeI believe its because of the rich variety of raw ingridiants and especially because of the special flavor of the cardamom.
