Extra dates

Unfortunately they are not in the entertainment form.

Okay, I have about 10 oz of extra dates that I would like to use before they go bad.

What to do with them? I've never cooked anything with dates before. They are organic and pitted (not canned).

Chop them up and add them to oatmeal, eat them by themselves as a snack or make these fabulous cookies! Healthy Banana Cookies - Allrecipes

Date nut bread. I don't have a recipe but love a slice spread with a thin layer of cream cheese.

I also like to just eat them whole but am finding that I can't get through them fast enough.

me too! In fact, I always do.

You can take the pit out and replace it with peanut butter, nutella or fudge. Really decadent and delicious! Finish ouff by rolling the fudge stuffed ones in granulated sugar.

Charoset, that is very interesting. How is it pronounced? Can you please spell it phonetically?

I'm going to a party this weekend and this looks like something I could bring as a spread for crackers...healthy and looks tasty!

The CH is like the sound you make when you are (sorry to be crass) trying to spit. It is a Hebrew word if that helps. The rest is already spelled phonetically. If you can not make that CH sound (liek a lot can't) then it would be har-o-set with the accent on the o.
