Before sugar or even honey, humanity’s original sweetener came from dates. Going back to at least 4000 BC, dates were the go-to fruit for adding depth of flavor and sweetness to every dish.
Indiana Jones jokes aside, there’s nothing bad about these dates. As a matter of fact, there’s nothing in this bottle BUT organic medjool dates from California that have been slowly roasted to extract the syrup. It has a concentrated fruitiness that accompanies the complex sweetness it imparts to every dish.
Use it as finishing drizzle to your oatmeal
, or over fresh goat cheese
. Roasted meats like pork tenderloin come to life with a dose of this sweet elixir.
