Helpful Hint

  • This recipe keeps for 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 3+ months in the freezer.
  • Make your Date Paste in bulk. It will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer. Store your Date Paste in a ziplock baggy, laying it flat in your freezer. Freezing it flat will enable you to break off a small or large piece as you need it.
  • Can be used as sweetener in baking
