Organic Medjool Dates
These pillowy, fleshy organic Medjool dates are the ultimate sensory experience. With a flavour somewhere in between caramel and maple syrup, Medjool dates are truly nature’s candy. They are known, rightfully so, as the Queen of dates due to their extraordinary soft texture and sweet taste. These organic dates are grown in the hot, dry desert and dried by the heat of the sun while still attached to the palm.
Organic Medjool dates are an excellent natural substitute for the sweetener in your recipes, as well as the the main ingredient in the infamous date squares - although they’re so sweet, they make a wonderful dessert on their own! They are also the perfect quick snack after intense physical activity due to their high fibre, potassium, iron and magnesium content. They are known to promote muscle regeneration and digestive health, act as an anti-inflammatory and improve heart health.
This succulent fruit can be paired with many different flavours in recipes from around the world. Its delicate, smooth and sweet aroma will definitely make a statement when featured in any dish.

Be mindful of fermentation! Dates contain sugar which means they need to be conserved in a cold and dry cupboard, away from humidity. You can also put them in your fridge. If stored properly, dates can be kept for up to 8 months.
