About Pitted Dates Free Flow

Free Flow dates, are unpressed dates, they contain a small amount of vegetable oil to help prevent clumping. The date palm, native to the Middle East, was mentioned in the bible as the "tree of life," and the word "date" comes from the Greek "daktulos", which means "finger". Dates grow in large bunches which can weigh as much as 40 pounds, and large trees will yield more than 1,000 dates each year. In many countries dates are added to salads, couscous dishes, curries and used in baked desserts and confections. Because dates are very high in sugar, they can easily be converted into sugar. To make date sugar, arrange sliced dates on a baking sheet and bake at 450° for 10 to 15 minutes, or until very dry and hard as rocks. Grind in a food processor to make sugar.

Generally speaking our customers have found that these dates are most suitable for cooking and baking. The organic ones are better for snacking on (more uniform in size).

Raw Vegan Tropical Mango And Passion Fruit Cheesecake Recipe

Summary: Raw Cheesecakes are perhaps the most popular Raw Vegan desserts, and with reason. They are amazingly delicious, really easy to make, and they are so much better for you than a traditional cheesecake. This Raw Vegan Mango And Passion Fruit Cheesecake is no exception : the mango flavoured crust is chewy yet crunchy, the mango cream is delicious and velvety smooth, and the passion fruit topping is tangy and adds a great crush when you bite into the seeds.

Fat Free Sugar Free Vegan Christmas Cake Recipe

Summary: This rich fruit cake is just unbelievable : it it made without eggs, butter or margarine or oil, and added sugar, yet it tastes just as delicious and decadent as you would expect any good Christmas cake to. The magic trick here is to replace the butter-sugar-egg mixture with dates blended with water. Using wholemeal flour further increases the fibre content, making this Christmas cake healthier. I used mixed vine fruit with peel, but the peel does contain sugar. To keep it really sugar free, stick to mixed vine fruit : sultanas, raisins and currants, and be sure to choose those with no added sugar. Also, I chose to decorate the cake with some home-made, low sugar vegan marzipan on the top, but beware that this would also increase the sugar content, unless you make your marzipan with xylitol.
