Make a Date with Dates

Dates are high in fiber and contain iron and potassium. They are also one of the sweetest of fruits…70% of their weight can be made up of sugar. To prevent sticking when slicing or chopping dates, spray your scissors or knife with cooking spray…or frequently dip in cold water. Dried dates stay fresh for 1 year in the refrigerator and for up to 5 years in the freezer.
