Default Dried Pitted Dates

Shipped by mistake by one of our vendors 50 pounds of dates. What to do with that many I have no clue, help please.
Also received 50 pounds of dried apricots, made preserves and pie filling from them. CF

Well, I'm going to make "Devils on Horseback" for our Kentucky Derby party this year.

They are dates, either soaked in soy, or port or nothing, stuffed with almonds or cheese or nothing, wrapped in bacon and baked.

That will do for a few dozen.

Here is the recipe I will be doing. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/215385/...-on-horseback/

But I might also try a few soaked in tawny port and stuffed with blue cheese, the way I first tried one at a barbecue competition (from Robbie Richter, who now owns at least one restaurant in NYC).

There are simpler ones - the only common denominators are dates and bacon.

What about date syrup? I use it to some cakes and cookies as well some desserts. Here is recipe:

Dates Syrup



Ingredients

2 cup of seedless dates
2 cup of hot boiling water

Method


1. Wash and soak dates in hot water for at least for 2 hours



2. Mash the dates well, filter and extract the water using a cheese cloth





3. Add this pulp back to the bowl used for soaking and pour little more water, squeeze up and filter again

4. Bring this water to a boil in a heavy bottom pan, keep string to prevent burning at the bottom






5. Boil till you see a thick consistency. The right consistency is to be as thick as honey. It took 11 mins for me on a medium high flame.






Notes:

1. Do not over boil; else the syrup will be burnt
2. While boiling , the mix looks frothy and white, do not worry, it will settle down once cool and you will get a glossy syrup
3. Keep refrigerated.
4. Use within a week.
5. After filtering the pulp of dates the second time, you can use it for baking breads. It has still taste and healthy fibers.

Creamy date shake is also one my favorite:

Creamy date shake



Serves 2

1/2 cup dates, pitted
1/2 whole milk yogurt
2 tablespoon heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
2 tablespoon honey (optional)

Remove any seeds and stems from the dates.

In a large blender combine all the ingredients and blend at least one minute or until the mixture is smooth or to the preferred texture.

Pour into glasses and serve with a straw for easier drinking.

I just saw an episode of The Kitchen and GZ made a stuffing for pork roast that had dates in it. Not sure what variety of dates you have or if you have the other ingredients but I would think you can use this recipe as a template and make it work for you.
