I like to emphasize, though, that organic date syrup is more than just a great replacement for processed sugar, its depth of flavor and complexity make it more like my favorite condiment.
Springfield, Mo. (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
The new Date Lady Organic Caramel Sauce and Date Lady Date Syrup are USDA Organic certified and appeal to consumers who can use it straight from the jar as a versatile and delicious condiment as well as a natural substitute for sugar for baking, said Colleen Sundlie, company founder. The caramel sauce contains just three simple ingredients, organic dates (date syrup), organic caramel extract and sea salt, Sundlie said. The sauces also are gluten free, dairy free and vegan, she added.
“Like our original date syrup, the new caramel sauce is very versatile. Both can be used on ice cream, yogurt or pancakes, for dipping fresh fruit, in gravies and sauces, and as a stand-out addition for cheese plates, or even lattes,” she said. “All of our products are sourced from farms that are certified organic and use traditional production methods, which let the rich flavors of the dates shine through.”
The date syrup and caramel sauce also make a great natural sugar substitute in baked goods and savory dishes, Sundlie said. “Some of our customers tell us they are looking for gluten free syrup and healthy sweeteners for baking and for everyday cooking. The viscosity of the date syrup helps give baked goods volume and height without adding other fillers,” she said, “and unlike some substitutes that give baked goods a relatively short shelf life, date syrup retains freshness, sweetness and texture. I like to emphasize, though, that it’s more than just a great replacement for processed sugar, its depth of flavor and complexity make it more like my favorite condiment.”
A wide variety of recipes are online at ILoveDateLady.com, including desserts like cakes, muffins and cookie bars along with savory barbecue and pizza sauces and salad dressings. “Date syrup gives everything that special something that people notice, but can’t necessarily describe,” Sundlie said. “Yotam Ottolenghi, co-author of ‘Jerusalem: A Cookbook,’ calls date syrup his one curveball ingredient.”
Date Lady Caramel Sauce and Date Lady Date Syrup are available in 12-ounce jars, and whole organic dates are packaged in a resealable 8-ounce pouch with a suggested retail price of $6.99.
