Date honey is a sweet, Middle Eastern product that isn’t related to honey at all. Date honey or silan, is produced by boiling dates into a thick, gooey liquid. This viscous liquid resembles honey. In hebrew, devash translates as “honey.” If you aren’t ready to make your own, check out The Date Lady (notice that big word VEGAN on this packaging. Love it!).
Update This page previously said devash was vegan, but that is incorrect. Devash is honey, the direct translation. I have updated the article to reference the correct product, silan, which is the vegan, date honey.
