    Is there an easy way to chop pitted dates? I actually gave myself a blister doing this today. icon_cry.gif

    If they don't need to be chopped fine, I often snip dried fruit with kitchen scissors.

    So do I' but dates are more sugary and sticky than most. If you don't have a food processor, dip the scissors or knife frequently in HOT water to prevent excessive sticking. Spraying the blades with a cooking spray can also help.

    I tried the food processor and it was a gummy mess...why didn't I think of spraying the blades with PAM? Thanks for that idea. The recipe I was making called for the dates to be tossed in flour afterwards, so I did try tossing them in flour and then cutting them, and it helped but still wasn't easy.

    I use kitchen shears and dip in hot water. Works as good as anything, and easy
