date syrup

recipe# 85

Date Syrup
* 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.
