Hey! So I've been a pretty big fan of Agave for awhile, I know it's not considered pure raw but I've been buying the brands that boast their processing temp to be under 118 degrees...but now I've been reading some articles about how none of it is good for you because the companies lie about the way it gets made, and the darker agave means it's been cooked at a temperature that's too hot and it's been burned, and ah! So annoying! There's no way to know what brands are good and which ones are full of it. So, even though I was excited by all of the health benefits that pure agave can give, I just don't trust the ones that say they're pure. So I need to switch to another sweetener since I really do need a sweet something in my tea and for other recipes, otherwise I feel totally unsatififed. I was thinking about making date syrup with some mejools that I have, but I don't really have a recipe... Does anyone out there know a good one? Or a good substitute for a syrup-style sweetener? Also, I've tried to dehydrate dates, leaving them in for almost 48hours, but they were still soft. How do you dehydrate a date??? Thank you!
