Oh, what a lovely weekend we had here in Central New York! Lots of sunshine and warm breezes were fantastic excuses to spend time outdoors. I even got a wee little sunburn on my nose.
Unfortunately they didn't have their medjool dates out yet. :( I'll have to be patient, I guess.
The verdict: at the same time very similar to and very different from apple butter; certainly has more body; sweet but not too much so, smooth and creamy. It's really quite delicious! I can imagine it spread on waffles, toast, pancakes, muffins, scones, on crackers with cream cheese, dolloped onto vanilla ice cream, and even baked into coffee cakes or streusel. What a fun find!
