Using a small serrated or paring knife, slice 1/4″–1/8″ down lengthwise into the date. You should hit the pit. Pull open the date and remove pit.
NOTE: Look for sundried dates in your local health food store and try the bulk section for the cost savings. Ask your grocer to stock the ingredients that you need.
