  • 1 lb Medjool Dates
  • 2 cups water (plus more, if needed)


  • Remove the pits from dates and place all the dates in a medium saucepan.  Pour the water over the dates.  There should be enough water to cover the dates.
  • Cook the dates in water on medium high heat until the water is boiling. Turn the heat lower and simmer for about 40-50 minutes. Stir the dates every 10 minutes to make sure it's not sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add more water if necessary to maintain enough moisture.
