These nutrient loaded delights are creamy and caramelly with a soft chewy texture. They are so unbelievably sweet, you feel a bit suspicious that they can actually be so great for you.
I use them as is for a quick energy booster and in my baking that require sugar. They’re unbelievable in and as desserts. There are other types, yes but again, there really is no choice.
During the month of Ramadan, muslims the world over pray and fast. In Sierra Leone, we enjoy great religious freedom and the sales of dates skyrocket during this period as these fruits are often advised to be used to break the fast.
We call it tamaro. I’ve never seen the Medjool types only the Deglet Nour (Queen of all Dates) variety. I am not a fan of those. If you are fasting in Sierra Leone, please avoid the tamaro dipped in syrup. For some ungodly reason, some packagers take this delicious and already very sweet fruit and dip it in syrup. Why you ask? To extend its shelf life and preserve it. Yet there are other ways and by coating it with added sugar, all that is great in it has been compromised.
STAY AWAY FROM SYRUPY DATES!
