How to make date sugar from scratch – Paleo, gluten free, vegan
Prep Time:2 mins
Cook Time:2 hours
Total Time:2 hours 2 mins
1 large baking tray
A bag of fresh medjool dates (pitted)
Coffee grinder or food processor
Preheat the oven 150C/300F/gas mark 2.
Spread the pitted medjool dates evenly on the entire baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Place the baking tray in the oven and allow the dates to roast in the oven until they are rock hard to not charr, so keep a watchful on them during the entire process.
The dates should have reached the desired stage in approximately 2 to 3 hours..
Once done remove from the oven, set aside and let the dates cool completely.
Once cooled and hardened, pulse the dates in segments using either a food processor/coffee grinder into a powdery form. The sugar may lump after pulverising, don’t worry this is normal and still be used.
Store in an airtight container (can last for several weeks)
