Recipe: Jujube Red Date Jam - Vegan - By Jeanette Chen

  • Prep Time: 12 hours
  • Cook Time: 7 minutes
  • Servings: 11
  • Calories: 78 kcal
  • 170 grams pitted dried red dates
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Cover red dates with water and soak overnight. Cover with wet cloth to keep red dates submerged in the water.
  • Place red dates in a pressure cooker (or a normal pot). Add coconut sugar and 1 cup water. Cook at high pressure for 7 minutes (or longer if you are using a normal pot). Naturally release the pressure for 10 minutes, then quickly release the remaining pressure. Let red dates cool.
  • Place in a food processor with any remaining liquid. Process until smooth. Strain pulp. This should yield about 300 grams of red date puree/jam.
