… and the butter’s getting hard — yep, just like in the song by System Of A Down. I did give the Datella recipe another go, this time adding a tablespoon of coconut butter. The texture wasn’t powdery anymore; more on the oily side. And after one night in the fridge, well, my spread wasn’t so much a spread as a big block of chocolate-y fat. Sad face!
Still delicious, but 1. hard to spread and 2. you could definitely taste the coconut. I love coconut, but I didn’t intend my datella to taste like it, so… *shrugs*
What else? I bought Medjool dates. Next time I feel like being a food snob, somebody beat me with an empty purse until I take a long, hard look at the price tags and go for Deglet Nour…
No recipe to share yet, but I’m leaving you with the silly above picture and two words: pea and pod.
… oh, and a happy new year. ❤
