Date sugar

My obsession with dates continues with date sugar!  I just pitted about 15 dates and they are in the oven at 170 degrees.  I'm drying them out at a low temp so they don't lose all of their nutrients.  Some recipes call for 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes but I wanted to make them more "raw."  They will be in the oven for a few hours so I'm hoping by late tonight, I will have date sugar.  Date sugar is a low glycemic sugar and if you make it homemade, you will ensure there is no processing, no chemicals added, etc.  It's a great alternative to white sugar.  I'm anxious to see the consistency and I would like to add some date sugar to my oatmeal tomorrow morning.  I love sugar and I'm constantly looking for healthier sweeteners.  Stay tuned....
