figs > dates
Where do you live where Paw paws are marketed? That's rare...
I’m older than dirt so I’m not either. I tried Match and other similar services. Oh the horror. You get a chance to meet people who misrepresent themselves; spend an hour or two in agony; and waste time and money.
I might prefer to have a root canal than endure any of that ever again.
As for dates, the food, my mother used to make a holiday desert with them and it was very tasty.
Neighbor grows them. Picked ripe and eat them like NOW!
I too see little chance if trying to grow and market them. The window is too narrow and the fruit is too delicate and perishable.
I guess thats part if what makes it a special treat.
Anyone ever get ripe persimmon?
Kind of similar, but maybe slightly less rare elsewhere.
Toss it in the microwave for 10 seconds if you want a hot date.
I've had pawpaw...there's a pawpaw society near me in Illinois. You just don't see them very often is all.
Date recipe : take some big dates. Split them in half, take out the pit and the stem. Spread peanut butter on both sides and eat as a snack. They’re delicious and better for you than a candy bar or cake.
Weren't you afraid Ella might catch something from you?
I mean....she doesn't know where YOUR mouth's been.
I'm in full agreement about fresh/wild fruit is way better.
I want to add fresh/wild blueberries, raspberries (my favorite) and blackberries to the list.
Ella was very cool, not ( outwardly) super-friendly, but if you knew her, we each ( in our family) bonded with her.
So Fig Newtons ( and Little Debbie oatmeal pies!), and her always sitting near me, was my bond with her.
You know, I read the thread title and I thought “Dang, poor guy. I wouldn’t want to arm wrestle him.” and then I thought “I’m gonna make a fruit joke!” but then I thought “Naw, it’s too sad. Let it go. Let it go.”
I satisfy my cravings for fruit by eating sugar coated orange slice candy. I like the rassbery, lime, and lemon ones too. You never know what birds and bugs have done to that stuff that grows outdoors.
A few Christmases ago I had some, but im
I love dates, great to chop up and use with cereal instead of raisins. My favorite unhealthy date recipe is to remove the pit and stuff them with blue or goat cheese, wrap them in prosciutto and roast until the prosciutto starts to get crispy. Drizzle with some honey and it's a fantastic appetizer.
Apparently @Toto'sDad has found a place to buy Russian Dates.
Nothing actually grows in Arizona, it just survives until the sun can burn it to a crisp. That's why chihuahuas are so popular there, they can stand in the shade of a lizard, and most of them make it 'til mid summer. You should see it when they flip the lever, and Phoenix turns over upside down, and they live under ground until the worst of the summer heat is over. Don't tell me they don't do this, I've been there when it happens, a guy better grab onto something when you feel the streets shift, or you're dog meat.
If you could see that picture of Zaika that she sent for "my eyes only" you'd realize there was more truth than poetry in your statement!
Dates wrapped in bacon and grilled ,,,yumm..
Dam threads like this one. I stopped in at Kalustyan’s middle eastern/south Asian market in little India in NYC and bought a pound of Medjoul dates. Yum.
