WHY DATES?

You can find out more about why I love using this syrup in my previous Homemade Date Syrup post. There I touch on the nutritional aspect of dates and some of its benefits. The method I use in that recipe is great when you have more time and want a more refined syrup. In that process you are also left with a delicious date butter which is amazing on sourdough toast or biscuits.

HOW TO MAKE EASY DATE SYRUP

INGREDIENTS:

  • 14 Medjool Dates (or your favorite kind of dates)
  • 1-1/2 C Water and 1 tsp Lemon Juice (the lemon juice is optional, but doesn’t effect the taste much and extends shelf life)

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE?

Store your syrup in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. If needed add water before use to thin down a bit.
