I’ve been waiting to finish this jar of date spread so that I could make my own. I knew my own would be way better and I knew that mine deserved the title, Date butter. Spread just sounds so…70’s.
Mine was way better.
My sister told me I was a butter freak. I denied it but umm….I dunno, maybe.
Here’s how you it
2 cups of dates tightly packed
2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped, toasted walnuts
Gently simmer everything except walnuts until dates are soft enough to stir into a paste. This took me about 40-50 min and all I had to do was use a wooden spoon to turn it into butter. Once it’s cooled, stir in your toasted walnuts. That’s it. If you’re a date lover like me, you will be addicted to this stuff.
So now I bet your wandering, What Michelle, do I do with this crazy deliciousness called date butter?
Oh don’t you worry, I have 101 recipes to share using my date butter.
My head is all abuzz.
I may not sleep tonight.
