Arguably the most delicious, sweetest of the dried fruits, dates are best eaten just as they are- or perhaps baked inside a sticky date pudding- yum!!
* The white stuff you may occasionally see on the outside of a date is the natural sugar crystalizing and making it’s way to the outside of the date. It’s totally fine to eat, but if you don’t like the looks of the white stuff or if you want the date to be softer you can wrap it in a damp paper towel and microwave it for 5 seconds, the date will plump up and the sugar will be absorbed back into the date.
