Date Syrup #1

15 dates, halved and pitted

1.5 C water

.75 C sugar

Combine in saucepan and simmer uncovered until reduced to about 1 C. Remove saucepan from heat and let rest until it reaches room temperature. Remove dates and measure syrup. If less than 1 C, add water to reach 1 C.

Note: To make the leftover dates into candied dates, throw them in a low-heat oven for maybe an hour, then let them cool.
