WHAT’S IN SEASON THIS RAYA?
One of the oldest cultivated fruits and it’s a staple during Ramadhan month. Contains high level of natural sugars that converts into energy before the Iftar meal. It’s so high in Vitamin B6, magnesium and soluble fibre. Having a date first helps the body to start its digestive process and provide energy to digest bigger meal.
HOW TO CHOOSE?
Fresh dates should be plump and moist with glossy skins while the dried ones although wrinkly shouldn’t look emaciated but still plump and glossy as well. With plentiful of dates this season, use it to make raw dates energy bar, dates cookies, or stuff dates with dessicated coconut and pistachio for some gorgeous finger food.
