If you only have a regular blender, you may be able to get the desired sweetness by soaking the dates in water for 1-2 days before preparation. See more notes in the blog post.
Serves: 1¾ cups
1 cup dates, pitted (medjool, deglet noor or any other kind!)
1 cup water
2½ cups fresh cranberries
In a high-speed blender, add your dates and water and process until the dates are completely pulverized (see headnotes for instructions if you have a regular blender).
In a medium sized saucepan over medium-high heat, add your blended date mixture and the cranberries. Cover and cook for about 12-13 minutes or until all the cranberries have popped, stirring every couple of minutes, to ensure the sugar mixture isn’t burning. Serve warm or cold according to preference.
