  1. Oh, the idea of ‘enhanced’ dates is very interesting. I love dates and had never thought of doing this kind of thing with them. Would they need to be refrigerated?

      1. Thank you for your response my dear. I will certainly make a smaller amount since I would be the only one eating them. I did see the date milk recipe some while ago but, my butterfly mind had forgotten it, thank you for the reminder.

Welcome! I hope you are enjoying what you see here. Thank you so much for your comment and your thoughts.
