From Red To Brown

Our dates are being harvested early this year and a neighbour sent us probably about 10 kg of lovely Zaghloul dates still on the branches. We picked them off, put them into bags and have filled an entire fridge with them. Right now most of them are a deep dark wine red, but even in the cold, they will gradually darken, soften, and ferment....becoming the dates that people outside of the Middle East are more accustomed to.
