Date paste

Date paste is traditionally made with medjool dates, which are very sweet, and it’s incredibly easy to make at home. Simply cover a cup of pitted dates with water, soak for 10 minutes, keep a cup or so of the water, drain the dates, and blend them with the reserved water. You’ll get a nice, creamy paste that tastes delicious in recipes for muffins, cookies, oat bars, and more. Because it’s just dates and water, you get the nutrients of the sweet fruit like fiber, potassium, and manganese. Since dates are already dried and preserved, this paste can last about six months in the refrigerator.
