Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
- Dates, Medjool -

(Dates - Medjool)  The medjool dates in the full size photo are about 2 times actual size.  To us, these are one of the finest eating dates available.  The medjool dates come from Southern California.  They are sold in major supermarkets.  We purchase ours from our co-op at about $3.50 per pound.  Medjool dates come with pits, some of which we've planted to grow our own ornamental date palm trees (see photo-left: Medjool Date Palm Tree).  See the nutritional information below.

The 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!  (d-14)
