Dates, Mecca Gold

Dates, Mecca Gold
(Dates, Mecca Gold) Mecca Gold dates are a somewhat smaller variety of eating date.  They have a slightly heavier skin with a deliciously soft sweet interior.  The term "Gold" in the name is somewhat misleading; as can be seen in the photo, these dates are a darker variety.  Each date has a long thin seed.  We have not seen them sold in stores.  These veganically grown dates were ordered directly from the grower, The Date People, P. O. Box 808, Niland, California 92257.  We could not find any specific nutritional information for Mecca Gold dates.  For general nutritional information about dates, we suggest you look at the charts we have published with our presentation of Deglet and Medjool dates.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
