We partnered with our friends at Natural Delights, purveyors of Medjool dates, for our latest contest—Your Best Recipe with Dates.
The results are in! Here are the recipes our community loved from Your Best Recipe with Dates. It's clear you have a knack for featuring dates, in both sweet and savory applications.
Once again, we want to give a big, big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read the winning headnote and tester's comments by clicking on the image to get to the recipe page itself—the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!
Wings just got a little sweeter with the addition of roasty, buttery dates in the sauce. Vinegar and lime juice keep things from getting too syrupy—and the extra splatter of chives, sesame seeds, and honey are pretty fun, too.
These Moroccan Crêpes with Spiced Fruit Compote are a shoe-in for a beginner crêpe-maker—they're sturdier than the French kind, which makes them less scary to cook. And the compote? Slather that on toast, plop it on oatmeal, or eat by the spoonful.
The fudgy kind of brownies, without the gluten, refined sugar, or dairy. And because they're not so sweet, they reminded some of our editors' of homemade energy bars—and what's a brownie if not an energy bar, really?
