DATES, DICED - Kosher/Gluten Free

DATEDICE-5

Description:

Temporarily Unavailable... Deglet Dates, also known as "fingers of light", grow in thick clusters on the giant date palm. Dates have long been a common food item in the Middle East, originating as a cultivated crop over 5000 years ago. Dates require a hot, dry climate and currently are grown in the U.S. Spanish missionaries introduced Dates to California in the 1700s. Most varieties are oval in shape with flesh that is cloyingly sweet. These diced Deglet dates are approximately 1/4 inch in size. Deglet Dates are an economical alternative to the more costly Medjool variety. Dates contain no cholesterol and are considered a good source of fiber.

Ingredient Statement:

Dates, Dextrose.

Temporarily Unavailable...

Use Deglet Dates as a snack or in desserts and baked goods. A rich addition to muffins, cookies, or scones. For an elegant treat, dip Dates in chocolate and roll in nuts or coconut.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

There is no preparation needed for dried fruit. If used in baking, you may want to rehydrate. To rehydrate dried fruit, pour boiling water over the fruit and let sit covered for 5 to 10 minutes.
