Dates: Nature’s Caramels

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

The date season is upon us, and the harvest is bountiful and ripe. Nature’s healthy caramel! :)

You may recall my introduction to fresh dates earlier this year, when I placed a large order of a few varieties to experience their delicious differences. I quickly finished off the medjhools (my favorites), but still have some deglet noor and halawi in the freezer.

That didn’t stop me from jumping on the new crop though, this time closer to picking. I got a couple two pound boxes of medjhools and a box of tarbazal, which I’d not yet tried.

They’re a little smaller than the giant medjhool and a touch less sweet, but just as moist and definitely larger and softer than the deglet noor and halawi. Very good.

As before, I went with the organic offerings from Pato’s Dream Date Garden, a family farm in California. They pride themselves on their hands-off approach. They don’t even wash them before shipping and suggest you rinse off the “desert dust.” ;)

Going Raw For Thanksgiving?

Monday, November 5th, 2007

Several weeks in the kitchen and the whole weekend spent putting it all down in pixels and I can happily announce the release of my first raw food recipe book! :)

You can find it over on my sister site Raw Done Light. There’s an “early-bird” special going on right now while I work on the affiliate materials.

Well, that’s it. Just wanted to share. I’m keeping this one short because I’m exhausted. So much for that extra hour of sleep we were supposed to get!

Oh yeah, Saturday would have been spent competing at chess, if I hadn’t blown my first-round game in the morning. I built up a better position, but then had a total mental lapse and blundered into mate. :(

World Vegan Day

It’s our day! :)

Click on the logo above to check out the event page, where you’ll find several resources, including the free booklet, Eating The Earth.

Between Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Truth and the recent United Nations report entitled Livestock’s Long Shadow, it should come as no surprise that this year’s theme is the environment.
