Description: Known as the “king of dates,” Medjool Dates are dried and contain an extremely sweet interior.
Medjool dates have been called the “king of dates” because of their exceptionally large size and extremely sweet interior. Despite their sweetness however, medjool dates are low in calories and are a good source of fiber.
Medjool dates vary from deep brown to rich, dark purple in color. Grown mostly in the US in California and Arizona, consumers in other regions can enjoy these tasty treats dried.
Medjool dates can be added to cookies, muffins or tarts. Their sweet taste and texture aren’t just suited for desserts, but can provide great contrast with savory flavors. Dates can be stuffed with cream cheese, sausage, or nuts—one popular recipe is to stuff the dates with nuts and wrap them in bacon.
