The History of Dates
Being one of the oldest cultivated trees in the world, Date trees are cultivated in abundance across the middle east and North Africa.
Phoenix dactylifera, also known as dates, are mainly recognized as the “food of the poor” or the “bread of dessert”. With over 3000 variety, their subtle sweetness and chewy texture make dates a unique item in culinary usage, medical purposes, and religious practices.
After being a necessity for survival in harsh weather, dates are now a culinary delicacy. They are packed with health-boosting properties such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Dates are versatile and an essential part of our daily diet.
Date trees are not only sought after for their sweet taste, dates also hold a spiritual meaning. Often referenced to in religious texts such as Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. The sweet fruit is a symbol of prosperity and faith in the Arab world, and a customary warm welcome for visitors in Middle Eastern households.

Tip 2: For a healthier take, substitute the butter or ghee with coconut oil. You will also get to enjoy a slight coconut taste to your date bars.
Tip 3: You can use a mixer when working the butter into the sugar, but I prefer using the old fashioned way. Using your hands is quicker, easier, and perfect for mixing the tiniest bit of sugar with the melted butter.
