I was searching the web on recipes that I could use dates in. I came across a Caramel Date sauce that sounded interesting. I admit I've never made anything with dates and the only time I've ever had something with dates in them were protein bars.
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup water
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
1 tsp vanilla (or less)
After you take the seeds out of the dates combine them in a jar or container with the water. Put in refrigerator over night. Using your blender or food processor dump in the dates with the liquid, Himalayan salt & vanilla. Blend until it is smooth. It will be a creamy peanutbutter like consistency. Serve with freshly sliced apples and enjoy.
This was pretty good. I personally might cut back on the vanilla or possibly obmit it myself. One thing I like about this is that it is naturally gluten free, soy free,vegan and free of preservatives and junk. It is a healthy alternative to Carmel dips and it kinda has a Carmel taste.
