What to Do with a Kilo of Khalas Dates? A pound of Agen prunes?
These come from Abu Dhabi and are pressed together, (unpitted, I think). I hate to confess it, but this package (a gift) has been lying on my counter for the past 10 months, the prospect of cutting up and wrestling bits of date off my kitchen shears sending me off to the other side of the kitchen every time I picked it up.
Actually, I could--and maybe should--eat those lovely Agen prunes straight, but I thought the 'hounds might give me even better more enjoyable ideas. I have fond memories of childhood prune cakes with prune-studded buttercream icing, but that might not be the best and highest use for these prunes.
