2/3 C filtered water
I had been fascinated by recipes using dates as sweeteners on many of the blogs I read. Of course I have to try it being they are so inexpensive compared to any other sweetener I buy. they last a long time, and are natural and unprocessed.
You can use Date Syrup in any recipe but depending on your taste you may want to stick with only baked and stronger tasting recipes such as muffins, sweet breads, cakes, and so on. Only because they will have a date taste slightly and that may not suit you in a recipe you are not expecting it in.
2 C filtered water
Microwave for 3 min until water is bubbling and dates are brown and soft add:
1/2 C palm sugar or sucralose brown sugar blend
Microwave another 2 min until bubbly and thickened slightly
Puree imediately in a food processor while dates are soft.
Recipe can be cooked on stove top as well. Let cool completely before use and store in an air tight sealed glass jar.
