What do I do with a pound of dates?

I was going through my freezer the other day and I found a bag of dates that I had thrown in there last year, simply because I wasn't eating sugar or sweet fruit at the time and couldn't think of a way to use them up before they molded (if they do indeed mold!). Anyway, now I am trying to get them out of the freezer, so I need a recipe that will use up lots of dates! I would just stuff them and wrap them in bacon, but since they've been frozen I don't know if their texture will still be good. I was thinking of making some type of compote or chutney to disguise any textural issues, something like one of these, although maybe with a more interesting spice profile (garam masala, curry, perhaps a little tamarind in the mix?):

Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for a date chutney? Or any other delicious recipe that uses a ton of dates?
