Green Beans with Pecans and Date Syrup

A quick saute with garlic and olive oil, these green beans are tossed with toasted pecans and a drizzle of date syrup, (also known as date honey.) The result is more savory than sweet, and totally delectable.


1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 large cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped Farm Fresh Nuts Dry Roasted Georgia Pecans Unsalted

2 tablespoons date honey plus extra for drizzling

Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Steps to Make It

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Add the green beans and cook until bright green and crisp-tender, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Drain and set aside.

In a chef’s pan or large skillet, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 to 60 seconds.

Add the green beans and pecans and sauté to coat with the oil.

Drizzle with the date syrup, toss together quickly, and remove from the heat. 

Transfer to a serving platter or bowl.

Drizzle with additional date syrup if desired.

Homemade Date Honey

4 cups Farm Fresh Nuts Pitted Dates

Enough water to cover


We recommend filling your blender about 3/4 full of dates and then adding enough water just to cover those dates. Blend until you get a paste and then taste it. If it’s too thick, you can always add more water, or more dates if too thin for your taste.

Once you have the dates and water blended, gently heat until the sugar in the dates breaks down. Cool and use. If you like a more syrup-like consistency filter through cheesecloth.
