How to store date sugar
Date sugar should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. It will stay good for up to 6 months. For longer storage, keep in the refrigerator or freezer.
Date sugar can be ever so slightly sticky so it may get stuck together in one big clump if allowed to sit for long. It can be broken up with a fork or in a food processor.
