Save money and chop your own dates instead of purchasing the pre-chopped dates. Spray your scissors or knife with cooking spray and cut or chop to desired size. The spray keeps them from sticking to the knife or scissors. Dipping the knife or scissors in water is another way to keep them from sticking. You can also freeze the dates for 1 to 2 hours which make them easier to cut/chop.
Eight ounces of pitted dates yeild about 1 1/2 cups of chopped dates.
Dates can be stored in your cupboard in an airtight container, the refrigerator or the freezer for extended time.
