Worcester Living: A date with destiny | #elderly | #seniors | #execrise

[ad_1]

A native New Englander, I am used to the cold and snowy winter, but around about the end of January I begin to dream of palm trees swaying in a balmy breeze. And if there’s one food that conjures up images of swaying palms, camel caravans and fragrant spices, it is the date.

Deglet Noor dates, pictured, are usually smaller, firmer and more delicately flavored than the rich Medjool dates.
Ingredients for Moroccan braised chicken with dates include cinnamon sticks, garlic, turmeric, cumin, cayenne pepper, toasted almonds and Medjool dates.

Soft, sensuous, and seriously sweet, the fruit of the date palm is nature’s gift to humanity. Often referred to as “the King of Dates” due to its enormous size and decadent taste, the Medjool variety of the fruit was once reserved for Moroccan royalty. Luckily, it’s now available widely to the non-royals among us, as growers around the world produce more than eight and a half million metric tons of various cultivars annually. And, while most dates do still come from the Middle East and North Africa, we can easily purchase domestically grown ones.
