Date Paste

What is date paste and what do you use it for, you ask? Well, I was asking that when I first saw a post about it.  It's fantastic, it's just dates soaked in water then blitzed until it becomes a smooth paste, and you can use it to sweeten desserts or just spread a layer of it onto your toast in the morning.
So what you do is you need a small jar.  Pack the dates in as tightly as possible.  You can add some other dried fruits in it if you wish, I added some dried apricots.  Then fill the jar up with water, close the jar, and leave it soaking overnight (if you're in a hurry, a couple of hours should do).  The next day, put everything in a food processor and blend until smooth, about 5 minutes.
