Spend This Thanksgiving With A Very Special Date
by Jason Coon

Jason's Date Crumble

ORGANIC California Jewel Dates!!!
Here is a great recipe we tried last week. It’s really yummy without being overly sweet.  It would be a super addition to any Thanksgiving table, as well as an evening treat for the family. (I even had it for breakfast!)


  • 2-1/2 cups chopped pitted dates
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 fresh lemon squeezed or 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1-1/3 cups flour
  • 1-1/4 cups old fashion oats
  • 2/3 cup rapadura (sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup or 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

1.  In 2-quart saucepan, bring dates, 1-1/2 cups water and lemon juice to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until thickened; cool.

2.  Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine flour, oats, rapadura and baking soda.  With pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is size of coarse crumbs.  Add 2 TBS of water.

3.  Preheat oven to 350.  Use 8-inch stoneware  or spray 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.  Evenly pres 1/2 of the crumb mixture into pan, then top with cooled date mixture.  Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture on top, pressing gently.   (I think next time we will add some walnuts or pecans to the topping as well!)

4.  Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely.  Cut into bars.

On this order we have 3 types of Organic Dates each available in 5lb boxes: Medjool, Deglet Noor Pitted and Date Pieces in Oat Flour.
