The Medjool Dates are the most beautiful in the world. Dates considered to be one of the world’s oldest cultivated fruits. Once reserved solely for the Moroccan High Court’s pleasure, these gorgeous dates now grow in a few select California and Arizona valleys.
Each date handpicked with care and love to ensure its exceptional quality and size. Medjool Dates are indeed the cream of a very exclusive crop. They’re usually sold dried but not dehydrated, causing them to be soft and sticky. Their sugars get concentrated as they dry, which further increases their sweetness. These dates are the largest, the sweetest, and the juiciest—incredibly meaty dates with tiny pits.
Medjool dates include antioxidants and nutrients that may reduce your risk of heart disease, improve digestion, and boost heart health, among other benefits. Also, they are cholesterol-free, sodium-free, and fat-free, high in potassium and vitamins. A serving of power-packed dates contains 31 grams of carbohydrates, making them a powerhouse of energy.
These dried fruits are available year-round at most grocery stores. However, you’ll find it fast and easy to order your Dates from Food To Live, we’ll make sure to deliver this goodness right to your door.
How to Enjoy and Substitute for Sugar
Medjool Dates make a great sugar alternative due to their sweetness, which comes from fructose, a natural sugar.
To replace Medjool dates for sugar, make a date paste by combining
- 2 cups of pitted dates with
- 1 1/4 cups of water in a blender,
- then work this mix to substitute sugar in recipes at a 1:1 ratio.
Moreover, you can add this sweet fruit to smoothies and sauces, or mince them in a food processor for no-bake desserts like pie crusts, energy balls, and fruit-and-chocolate bars.
