The Muslim month of Ramadhan is nearly upon us, which is a holy month for them where they fast from sunrise to sunset, refraining from foods and liquids. I sort of look forward to it, primarily because of the influx of dried dates available at this time 😀
My dad loves these dates so I must have gotten it from him. We don’t usually get them in large quantities except for this period so this is a time when I can indulge in them. My favourite are the slightly dry ones dried on the stem but still moist on the inside. It is sweet but not unnaturally so, and has lots of fibre. I prefer not to eat the sticky sweet ones.
The reason we have a lot of it at this time is because many Muslims break their fast with these dates and some water. I however, enjoy it as a snack 🙂
Do you enjoy eating these dried dates too?
