Those who follow my blog for few years now probably got it that I LOVE fruit. All fruit. Sweet, sour, soft or crunchy. From first few strawberries, blueberries, to late apples - it's all welcome. I also love tropical fruit and even started growing my own lemons and other citrus, small banana palm and a pineapple. But sometimes I get a cravings for thing that are not available in this area, and my sister either brings me fruit when she's visiting or sends in a package. Today is one such day - I got a box of fresh Dates. Most people have tried dried dates (usually stuffed with peanut butter for some reason which makes me gag). But how many have tried fresh variety?
Next on my target is to get fresh green pistachios once they're in season in October! I love fresh not-dry nuts like walnuts and pistachios so I try to find them whenever they come on the market. Afterwards it will be very large pomegranates and Pomelos right in time for Christmas :)
