Date syrup from Israel -- suggestions?

ozhead | Jan 7, 200812:56 PM

My daughter just returned from a trip to Israel, and brought back for me a small jar of date syrup. It is dark brown, thicker than maple syrup but thinner than molasses, sweet without being cloying and with a distinct date flavor. This stuff is delicious by the spoonful right out of the jar, but I would imagine people use it for other things (though if not I won't be too disappointed; my spoon is ready!)

So: anybody have any ideas? More to the point, any middle easterners out there who have used it? If so, for what?
