It's a really good bargain for these as they're special dates unlike the normal ones. Extra sweet and soft from Madina.

I think morrisons are preparing for Ramadhan. I've already ate half a kg got them today... (Surely that's unhealthy lol)

just to add 10p from every sale goes to a good cause

I couldn't give a fig!

Don't eat Israeli ones but Medinah ones are great especially the ones with nuts

Good price and it's a whole Kg, should last 3 days for Ramadhan LOL

Ramadan is here, Ramadan is here!

In case people aren't near a Morrisons like me, I picked up a kilo box of dates for my dad from tesco for £2.99 yesterday - they were really nice but not the ones in the pic. Can't see them online though. But they weren't in the asian aisle but near the fruit and veg.

Really, please explain as I've never had a cheap date with a Tunisian?

Not unhealthy at all. A perfect aid to what some would call your gastric transit!

Thanks OP.

Figs are aladeen so is this deal!

This is a fantastic Date cake recipe. It works best with Israeli dates so apparently not for everyone....
Ingredients:
18 dates
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oil
1 tea spn baking soda
1 tbl spn cashews, walnuts(optional)
PS: If you use ‘baking powder’ instead of ‘baking soda’, cake becomes a bit harder.
Method:
Soak the dates in warm milk overnight (I usually don’t soak the dates since I use the seedless dates). Remove the seeds. Add sugar and grind them to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked in. Add oil and mix.
Sieve together flour and baking soda. Add the flour one table spoon at a time and mix slowly. Add the nuts and mix.
Preheat the oven at 350F. Bake the cake in a greased oven proof dish for 35-40min (or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean).
Makes 8 large pieces
Preparation time : 45min

I sincerely have no wish to turn this into a political debate, it's just that I feel I must ask where do you buy food from that you can eat with a totally clear social conscience? Never mind food, what do you manage to buy with a totally clear social conscience?

I bought this variety from Pak supermarket for just under a tenner so definitely Hot from me!

anyone tried Safawy?

I can't speak on anyone else's behalf but it's simple, you simply check labels and will find out where they're produced! Also it's not about "what do you manage to buy with a totally clear social conscience," it's about goods I'm aware of from the Occupied Palestinian Territories and avoid like the plague when possible!

Forgot to state this is a great deal OP, heat left.

Israeli Medjool dates are the best. (_;)



Would have agreed with you a couple of years ago. Based purely on taste, the Israeli Medjool dates taste gorgeous but I have found a better, tastier alternative - Palestinian Medjool Dates distributed by Yaffa sold in my local grocers at around £8/kg for the Jumbo sized premium quality ones.

I think it would be fair to state my own position first - I do NOT approve of the way that Israel treats the Palestinians and I also disapprove of the way that many regimes around the world treat their workers, both local and migrant. As a consequence, I find it increasingly difficult to make ethical purchases for my day-to-day needs.

Back to my questions. Regrettably, neither you nor NASH have actually answered my questions. My questions were not aimed at Israel specifically but were more general questions asking how do you buy things that you need day-to-day with a totally clear conscience?

If I may phrase my question a little differently, is it only things from Israel that you are boycotting because of their occupation of parts of Palestine or do you also include in your boycott places like Saudi Arabia and much of the Arabian Peninsula where much of the work is done by migrant workers who earn little and have no rights or perhaps you refuse to buy non-ethically produced goods because they tend to be produced in unsafe sweatshops in places like Bangladesh, China and Indonesia?

Personally, I find it very difficult to be 100% ethical when purchasing things and as a result I'm curious to know how careful other people are about the ethics involved with the things that they buy?

I believe it's the night of Sunday 23rd June.

The country of origin does matter as some come from illegally occupied territories and just like you get blood diamonds you get 'blood dates'. I know it's difficult to be ethical in this day and age for everything we buy but some things which are obvious are hard to ignore

Slight off topic (or on topic in this case :)) has anyone managed to find this deal in Scotland? Went to Morrosons in bathgate and they never heard of this deal.

Ramadan Mubarak!
