It starts with a medley of fresh raspberries, strawberries and black berries tossed with a little bit of pure Maple syrup. The topping consists of pecans, walnuts ( I subbed almonds) dates and a little cinnamon. Put it in the food processor and pulse until you have a coarse grind. Sprinkle over the top of the prepared fruit. I think the next time I make this I will also add a little bit of freshly grated nutmeg.
