Bunches of fresh dates such as this are readily available in most markets here in Jeddah. Each date is about two and a half inches long. They are crunchy and refreshing, similar to an apple in texture. Dates are eaten traditionally especially during Ramadan to break the fast at sundown. There are many varieties of dates to choose from. I prefer the large soft and meaty dried dates, which are grown within the Kingdom.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
