Why I Love This Recipe

The date butter is amazing in taste and it can be made really easy.This is one of my favorite recipes.If you want something different,try to make it with raisins or plums.It will be also really delicious and sweet.You can also try a mix of dates and almonds or hazelnuts.For the best taste,spread this butter on a slice of toasted whole wheat bread or use it to make homemade cookies and biscuits or just use it for making other desserts.You can do anything with it.Enjoy and have a good time!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups (150 gr) pitted dates
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger


Preheat a pot and put the dates in it.
Add water to cover the dates.
Add the lemon juice and wait the water to boil.
After boiling,cover the pot,reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 min,until the mixture is thick.
After that,leave the mixture to cool down and pour it in a blender or food processor and blend well until it’s smooth and creamy.
Store the ready butter in jars in the fridge for about 2-3 weeks.
You can also freeze it,if you want.
