Dates and Orange with Basil

dates and orange with basilDelicious dates make a good food-combination with citrus.


  • 150 g of stoned dates
  • 1 orange
  • 200 ml of grape juice
  • 1/2 lemon
  • a few springs of fresh basil

Peel the orange (make sure to remove all the white stuff that’s under the skin) and cut into pieces of a shape that seems aesthetically appealing to you. Add to a bowl with the dates.

Put the grape juice in a small saucepan and squeeze the juice from the lemon into it. Bring to the boil and reduce to a light syrup by boiling vigorously, but watch out near the end as the liquid can easily evaporate too much and burn quickly. It should only take a few minutes to make the syrup.

Pour the syrup over the fruit, add the basil (chopped, if it’s fresh) and mix all the ingredients. Leave to cool and serve.

Makes 2 servings. In case you want to cook more use double portion of ingredients. In case you can’t eat all of it at a time just put it into the fridge, and eat it the next day.
