Date paste is a fantastic way to add a touch of sweetness to sauces. Whole30 compatible and easy to make, I use this all the time in my Whole30 Date Mustard, Broccoli Salad, Sloppy Joes and more.
- 1 cup pitted dates, packed
- 1/2 cup very hot water
Combine dates and hot water in a bowl and let sit for 1 minute. I usually press them down into the water a bit to ensure they are all soaking.
Place dates and all the liquid in a blender or food processor and process for 30 seconds, or until smooth
Store in a closed container in the fridge for up to 3-4 weeks.
