I was wondering, a lot of recipes that call for dates do not specify if they are dried or not. Should I presume they are not even when a step is to soak the dates? I have some kind of Dried Korean Dates in my and I am not sure if these will work... (more)

If you are trying to watch your waste, I would agree with Owen and suggest avoiding them. They are extremely high in sugar, although its natural sugar. For me, personally, it sends me over the edge. I love websites with great desserts like paleomg... (more)

Dates are a natural food and one which apparently many mammals, some of which are probably our ancestors, fiercely contest for in African jungles and rain forests. However, it's also got an embarrassingly high glycemic index and load. Is there any... (more)

I would place dates in the same category as other unprocessed but high-sugar foods, and treat its intake the same way as you would raw honey, maple syrup, etc. Because it is a whole food, it has a nutrient content, and probably fits in to... (more)

I don't eat them often... Stay hungry, my friends. P.S. Breakfast sausage in place of the goat cheese is good too. (more)

OK, this one is for all you who don't necessarily think of raisins as "turds from Satan's pet bunny rabbit". I see a lot of recipes (especially refined-sugar-free dessert recipes) out there calling for "date paste". My question is, why aren't... (more)

I like fresh dates when I can get them. Dried dates I usually find a bit chewy and the large medjool dates are usually too sweet for me. Fresh dates are sweet and moist and taste great in combination with some good Normandy camenbert. Sure you... (more)
