Step 1

Remove pits from dates if necessary by making a small slit on one side of the date. Open slit and pull out the pit.

Step 2

To soften dates, place them in a glass or ceramic bowl and cover with hot water.  Heat 2 cups of water in the microwave for about 2 minutes.

Step 3

Allow dates to soften for 10-20 minutes. Newly purchased dates are usually soft and supple and will not require much more than 10 minutes.

Step 4

Remove dates from the bowl with a slotted spoon and place in a food processor. Add 1/4 cup of the water the dates soaked in.

Step 5

Process on high speed for 3-5 minutes, stopping and scraping the sides of the food processor as necessary. The exact amount of time depends on how smooth you would like the paste.

Step 6

Remove paste from the food processor to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
