I've found some fresh dates at my local grocery. They are so much better than the ones I'd bought in the package and used for cooking. The price seems a bit steep $5.49 a pound and there aren't that many in a pound, but they are worth it. I haven't decided what we will do with them other than just eat out of hand. I also bought some shelled brazil nuts so they are great together, as would any nut be with the dates.

Thought I would bump this thread instead of starting a new one.

I just bought some Medjool dates today, sooo yummy! I usually eat a couple with a handful of almonds as a snack. I've also made some lovely banana date cookies that are super scrummy. Oh and another good snack is a banana mashed up with 2 chopped dates stuffed into celery sticks.

Any other ideas about how to use these lovely sweet little things??
