Medjoul dates have been called the king of dates and the crown jewel of dates. Each centre of the date has an elongated pit, which is easy to remove. These dates contain a large amount of fruit meat, have a rich, almost caramel-like taste and a soft, chewy texture which makes them an excellent choice to use in smoothies or eating them as they are... in moderation of course!
Cooking with Medjoul Dates
Remove the stone and eat as a quick snack or use in savoury or sweet dishes. You could dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle some superfoods on top while the chocolate is still warm – think goji berries, raisins, almonds, chia, flax, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
I like to use dates to make energy bliss balls as these dates make an excellent binder. Blitz your choice of nuts, pitted medjouls and other dried fruit in equal measures a food processor until it forms a thick paste. Then roll into balls, cover in dessicated or shredded coconut and pop in the fridge – or enjoy as they are.
