Why did the Tomato go out with a Prune?
Because he couldn't find a Date!
Dates have been a staple food of the Middle East for thousands of years. The Ancient Egyptians were no strangers to Dates either- they made Date wine and ate them at harvest. Dates eventually made their way to North America in 1765, and we’ve treasured them ever since. Dates are sweet, and taste like a cross between a fig and a prune. Their delicious, sugary nature makes them an obvious addition to many sweet preparations!
