Purchase Guide

Fresh dates can be wrinkled, but they shouldn't feel hard. Look for fresh dates that are plump looking and have a slightly glossy look to their skin. Avoid dates that have crystallized sugar on their skins (a little whiteness is okay, but not actual crystals), since that means they are not quite as fresh as you might like.

Storage

Since they’re mostly sugar, they last a very long time. But store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator if you plan to use them for 45 days or more.
