How To Make Date Paste (video and the recipe here differ slightly)
This recipe yields roughly 2 cups of Date Paste. If you think this may be too much then you can freeze half of the batch.
Step 1: Prepping your Dates:
Soak 40 Medjool Dates in Warm Water until your Dates are tender/soft.
Remove your Dates from the soaking water
Remove the seeds by hand – make sure to get all of them!
Step 2: Making your Date Paste
1. Combine the following into your food processor:
All of the Dates from Step 1
2 Tbsp Water
Depending on how large your food processor is, you may need to stop processing in intervals to scrape down the sides to remove it all – don’t let this discourage you. You can also use a high powered blender.
Puree your Dates until they have become a thick whipped and creamy texture. Place your date paste in an air tight container and store in the fridge or freezer.
