Heat oven to 350°. Grease the loaf pan by dipping a paper towel in solid shortening and spreading thinly on the bottom and sides of the pan. Bring the water to a boil in the small saucepan. Pour the water over the dates in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter or margarine and brown sugar blend well. Stir in the egg and buttermilk. In a small bowl, blend the flour, oats, baking soda and salt stir into the batter. Stir in the nuts. Spread into the prepared pan. Set timer for 50 minutes and bake until the bread tests done which may take as much as 10 more minutes. To test the bread, insert a toothpick into the top center of the loaf. If the toothpick comes out clean the bread is done.
* If dates are not already cut up, dip the clean kitchen shears often into a cup of warm water and snip the dates into a measuring cup..
