Dates are native to the Middle East and have been a part of the region’s cuisine for thousands of years! They grow on huge trees called date palms in large clusters - like bunches of grapes, which hang higher than fifty feet off the ground.
These delicious chewy, caramel like fruits are very sweet and make an excellent substitute for white sugar in recipes due to their sweet taste, nutrients, fibre and antioxidants.
Cooking with Pitted Dates
Dates add a touch of sweetness when added to yogurt, cereals, porridge and smoothies. They team up exceptionally well on a meat and cheese board, and pair brilliantly in savoury meals - think salads, tagines, rice or cous cous dishes. You can eat them as they are (but think moderation as they are very moreish!) or combine into a nut and seed mix. They can also be used in baking – just chop them, simmer in little bit of water and then use in place of sugar.
