* 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
* 1 cup water
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a medium saucepan, bring water and dates to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add vanilla and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
Allow mixture to cool to room temperature. Place mixture in a blender with the cinnamon. Pulse until smooth and completely blended.
Store in a sealed container in your refrigerator. Warm the syrup before using.
I found this recipe here.
I used it to make a sandwich recipe, but it is very good on crusty bread with butter, or pancakes or ice cream.
