How proud we Israelis are of our dates! All over the world, Israeli dates are known as a synonym for quality dates.
All dates are great, sweet and healthy, but my favorite is the Barhi date, which is maller with concentrated flavors and a velvety texture. Try an organic Barhi date from Hilaf's farm, and be aware - it is addictive!
Dates are the perfect solution to sweet lust. A healthy, nutritious and low-fat alternative that competes with chocolate. It is also very hughly recommended to add it to a cheese platter, beef stew or salads.

Storing dates for a long time without refrigeration will cause them to dry out. It is therefore advisable to store dates for regular use in the refrigerator. It is recommended to keep the dates in an airtight container, to prevent dehydration and hardening of the fruit during cooling.
For prolonged storage, for more than a month, it is recommended to store dates in the freezer. The lower the temperature, the longer the fruit is kept in good quality. Storage in the freezer will preserve the natural date texture, will not cause it to dry out and lose the unique flavors that each variety has.
