This is a great couscous using a range of fruits and nuts including apricot, dates and almonds. A perfect side dish for any meat.

This is a huge amount. I halved the ingredients and still had way too much for my family of 4. The broth of boiling fruit smells unpleasant but thankfully that doesn't stay for the finished product. I made mine without nuts and was still tasty. - 18 Aug 2013
