This may not please the "gourmets", but issuitable for those on very
spartan diets (I found it made a welcome change when I was on a very
restricted diet).


1 cup	Dates (pitted, washed and chopped roughly)
1 TBS	Lemon Juice
1 tsp	RoseWater (optional)

Chop dates roughly and pack them firmly into a bowl.  Add lemon juice,
rosewater (if used) and sufficient water to barely cover the dates. 
Refrigerate overnight, then puree using a blender (hand-held is easiest). 
Store in a jar in the fridge.  Use as a topping for fruit desserts, or as a
spread on bread/crackers (if these are allowed).
