Why I have waited almost TWENTY.EIGHT.YEARS. to eat dates?!
I OFFICIALLY KNOW WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT!! Sorry about the all caps, but these little babies are DUH-vine.
Fair Trade Medjoul Dates from Palestine baby! You guys reccomended Medjoul, and I’m so glad you did! And check out the Nutrition Facts:
But I have to say I was little bit apprehensive. But my boss told me not to worry. In her words, dates taste like tiny little caramel drops that grow on trees. Indeed boss lady.
I first, tried them plain:
and discovered that there are PITS inside!?! Holy cow, so glad I found this out before I wrapped them in bacon
cause yeah, I did that.
Smoky, sweet. Crispy, gooey.
But I’m gonna throw a curveball at you. Bacon wrapped was not my favorite preparation. My friends and family just gasped while reading that, but it’s true. I actually preferred the dates
stuffed with a Laughing Cow light and a sliver of almond. Big ups to the reader who suggested the almond!
All in all, dates will be a regular in this household. Oh yes. They are going to become a permanent member of GHM family. I just…I just love them, with my whole heart.
So that wraps it up for this month’s new food! I know, I really waiting till the last minute!
