If you like spices you can add a tablespoon of cinnamon while cooking the jam!
This jam tastes great on bread or on melba toasts, dunked in a nice cappuccino or caffèlatte. But why not trying out something different and spread it on mature or fresh cheeses? You'll be amazed how good it can be!
You can enjoy this jam on homemade whole wheat bread while sipping on some Moscato d’Asti DOCG or on any other sweet dessert wine. If you are eating it with cheese, then a sweet white wine would be a good choice!
You can make jams with almost any dried fruits: try replacing the dates with dried apricots or figs!
Dates, especially the Deglet Nour variety, are considered 'the gold of Mediterranean Africa' and are amongst the most delicious and sugary fruits on Earth. Wonderful eaten fresh as well as dried, with their delightful taste and rich consistency, dates are an ideal ingredient both in sweet and savoury dishes. This recipe shows you how to turn these gorgeous fruits into a smooth, extraordinary jam. Let it sweeten up your life and why not, give it as a present to the people you love the most!
