All Labriski recipes call for date puree
: about 25 minutes
: Microwave for 4 minutes (you can also do it on the stovetop)
: 800 g of date puree: five 150 g (1/2 cup) servings and an extra 50 g serving
WHAT TO DO?
- 500 g dates (almost all of the standard package sold in grocery stores)
- 400 ml water
- Put the dates and water in a microwave-safe container and cook for 4 minutes.
- Then simply puree using a hand blender (ziiiiiiip! ziiiiiiip!) until you get a Greek yogurt like consistency.
And presto! There you have it, your very own delicious Labriski date puree!
If you don’t have a microwave, bring the water and dates to a boil on the stovetop and simmer until the dates have been reduced to a puree. If you don’t have a hand blender (ziiiiiiip! ziiiiiiip!), stir vigorously with a wooden spoon.
