Nope, I am not writing about boy dates girl. But the fruit from Middle East.
This is the first time I tasted fresh dates. It is rather expensive and this bunch you see in the photo costs RM18. Knowing that it is expensive, I asked the shop owner how dates taste like before buying. No tasting, of course.
He told me, “Today, it tastes like this. Tomorrow, it tastes like that.” That got me intrigued and I bought it.
Well, it tastes like ciku. And the yellow ones are very tart.
I still prefer the dried dates. And yet, they are expensive too. The one in the photo above costs RM90 per kilogramme. I bought 100 gram only and there are only about 10 dates. Which means, one date popped into the mouth is RM1.
I like dates stuffed with almond, pecan and cashew nuts. I asked the boss if he has any type of dates like that and he told me to slice the date and stuff with whatever I want myself. *ish*
