How To Store and Eat Dates

Dates last quite a while without any special storage, although a cool, dark spot may help prolong their life expectancy. They go well with certain cheeses, nuts, seeds, and fruit. Dates also complement sweet syrups and breakfast dishes. Many people find dates also taste good with yogurts, especially full fat or cream top yogurts.  Because dates are so high in calories, they make the perfect snack for hikers, athletes and long trips where high calories foods are necessary, but storage space is limited.
