Dates - Middle East dessert

Possibly the most famous in the Middle East, dates are preferred for their sticky natural sweetness – they are eaten daily by many throughout the Middle East, either on their own as an accompaniment to bitter Arabic coffee, or as a main ingredient in popular desserts and desserts.

In the West, dates - especially the large, sticky Medjool dates - are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their health and wellness properties as a natural alternative to processed sugars, and have become a key ingredient in some desserts.

In the Middle East, dates are still popular for breakfast during Ramadan and can be found in many desserts such as Tamar Halwa (a thick and sticky traditional Gulf date-based dessert), Ma'amoul (Eid favorite), and even in breads such as Ma'arouq – Brioche bread from Aleppo, Syria.
