    Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly oil 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom.

    Make the crust: In small bowl, soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes to soften. Drain well and place in food processor with remaining crust ingredients. Pulse until blended, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally.

    Place crust mixture in tart pan and evenly press in bottom and up sides. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until crust is firm to the touch. Remove and cool. Refrigerate until completely firm.

    Make the filling: Chop chocolate and place in heatproof bowl. In small saucepan, heat coconut milk just until it begins to bubble around the edges. Pour over chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in syrup and vanilla.

    Assemble the tart: Sprinkle finely diced ginger evenly over chilled crust. Gently pour chocolate ganache over crust and slightly stir to smooth out. Refrigerate tart for a minimum of 3 hours, and preferably overnight, until firm.

    To serve, arrange fresh fruit on top, if desired. Scatter extra candied ginger over top if you wish. Sprinkle with some flaked salt, and then cut into wedges and serve. Refrigerate leftovers, should there be any!
