A 500g bag of dried Aseel dates from Pakistan: deliciously sweet and soft, with a particularly intense caramel flavour and a dark brown skin. These dates are semi-dry and have no stones. They're lightly oiled with sunflower oil.
Sweet and juicy, these dates are naturally rich in potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.
Aseel dates are great for eating just as they are, but with their thin skin and high invert sugar level, they're especially suited to chopping and cooking. Made into a puree, they're a useful and nutritious sweetener.

Do you know why dates are called dates? The name comes from the Ancient Greek word 'daktulos', which means 'finger'. When dates hang on the tree, they look like bunches of little fingers! Grown in very dry climates, the date palm is an incredibly resilient plant and provides a reliable source of income for farmers in difficult environments.
