My paternal Grandmother used to make the most delicious sandwich filling with freshly grated apples and this date spread recipe.
All you need are dates, orange or lemon juice and filtered or mineral water.
Sometimes also called date paste, buy organic dates and fruit juice to make an organic date paste if available.
Date paste or spread also tastes delicious in sandwiches combined with walnuts and cream cheese, or with brazil nuts and chopped celery. Oh, and be sure to use a good artisan bread for this sandwich filling with dates.
