15 Pitted Medjool Dates
6 cups Hot Water
Raw: Place all ingredients in a Mason Jar then in the fridge. Let sit for 24 hours and you can strain out the dates pieces and start using the juice as a sweetener immediately or over 72 hours, shake and stir every few hours forcing the dates to slowly break up to make a thicker Syrup.
Cooked: Boil the juice and dates until completely liquified and turn off heat. Stir continuously while it cools down to thicken the Syrup.
Homemade date Syrup is a wonderful way to remove artificial sweeteners and processed sugar from your diet. It's easy to make in large batches and will add a delightfully sweet flavor to any dish, drink or baked good!
