Remove the seeds from the dates.
Soak the dates in 1 cup of hot water to soften for 25-30 minutes.
Once the dates become soft, place the dates and the water into a high-speed blender and blend for 3-5 minutes.
The date syrup will be HOT, allow to cool and place into your desired container.
If you're not using a high-speed blender you may get some pieces of skin or bits and pieces here and there, don't worry it's fine to eat.
