Date Paste

imageDate Paste

2 cups date pellets*

1 cup hot water

Place date pellets in a bowl and cover with hot water. After 30 minutes drain off excess water and blend thoroughly in blender or food processor. Store in a covered container in fridge. I have kept this for up to 5 weeks in the fridge.

*I prefer to use date pellets to make date paste, because they are usually far less expensive than whole dates, and since I blend them up they work perfectly. I usually find them in bulk bins at Sprouts, or similar. I have a delicious treat using whole dates coming up soon. Can you handle the suspense?!? (haha)
