For thousands of years, dates have been a valued food source in the Middle East. They are large and moist, and a taste sensation. The golden brown flesh has a fruity caramel taste and is covered in a tender, golden brown skin.
Medijools make a great snack when entertaining or on the go. You can use dates as a pantry staple in lunchboxes, raw food recipes, baked goods, and sweet or savoury dishes. Stuff them with fillings: Medjool dates can be stuffed with various fillings to create delicious and healthy snacks or appetizers. Some popular stuffing options include almond or peanut butter, cream cheese, goat cheese, or even a mixture of nuts and spices. Simply make a small incision in the date and remove the pit, then stuff it with your desired filling. Stuffed dates make for a delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors and can be served as a standalone snack or as part of a cheese or charcuterie board.
