Brilliant! Can't wait to see what you make with this. Oh, and just proof-read this post, coz I found several typos. (E.g. Second para: 'two' when it should be 'too').

That's scrumptious, well I have a query for that, I am facing Anemia (deficiency of iron) so is this recipe contains iron ??
Thanks Gaurav. Dates do have iron in them, but you would need to eat quite a few to have that iron be of any benefit to you. And when you start to consume dates in high quantity, you're adding a lot of natural sugars to your diet which may counteract the benefit of the dates themselves. Hope that helps.

This looks fabulous, Debs!! I didn't know you could make caramel from dates. I'll have to keep this in mind if I'm ever looking for a vegan substitute.
