ORGANIC DATES, Medjool, whole, large
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Production: Dates are, by general consensus, the world’s oldest known fruit. They have been grown throughout the Middle East and North Africa for over 6,000 years, a dietary staple and incorporated into almost every meal or eaten alone. Ancient cultures referred to date palms as “the tree of life”. Traditionally, dates were used to break fasts as they have high carbohydrate and sugar contents, immediately raising blood sugars and providing instantaneous energy. Medjool dates are one of the largest dates and considered far superior to any other type of date in terms of flavor and texture.
Qualities: One of the most popular and versatile dried fruits, dates are an endless source of nutrients and an excellent sugar alternative. Chewy and sweet, they are packed with fiber (a ½ cup of dates is approximately 22% of daily fiber intake) and potassium, magnesium, and manganese.
Common Use: Dates are excellent in both sweet and savory dishes. Try making your own energy balls, or in a salad with walnuts, Gorgonzola, and date pieces.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a well sealed container.

ORGANIC DATES, Medjool,
They are really tasty and I use them all time in place of sugar in most of my baking

these were so dry and hard when i got them, maybe 3 dates out of the entire bag were soft and actually enjoyable to eat. its too bad, the price is really good but i guess you get what you pay for!
I love them. Thank you! I use them for baking and sometimes spilt them in two and fill with homemade almond butter (Almonds from your store) Delicious :)
