The caramel in this recipe is made from soaked dates and their soaking water. It’s livened up a bit with a good pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon. The salt offsets the sweetness of the dates, and the cinnamon brings it to a more standard caramel color and lessens some of the dates’ sugary effect on your blood. You can use any dried fruits, nuts and seeds that you like.
