  • Serving

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water

    2. Line a large colander with a double layer of cheesecloth leaving about 6 inches overlap at the top. Place over a bowl that’s slightly smaller so the bottom of the colander sits above the bowl. Carefully ladle or pour dates and liquid into colander. Press well with the back of a spoon to force liquid into the bowl. Fold over cheesecloth and place a very heavy pot or bowl directly on the dates; set aside for 1 hour to drain. When cool enough to handle gather excess cheesecloth at the top and twist tightly to enclose dates; squeeze dates firmly to remove as much liquid as possible.

  • 3

    Pour liquid into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes or until mixture has reduced to just slightly over 1 cup, stirring frequently. As mixture reduces, lower heat and stir frequently to avoid scorching. Syrup will thicken as it cools. Makes about 1 cup.
