Medjool Filled Date Bites

Small bites of heaven to tantalize the senses and prepare your palate for what is yet to come. Medjool Dates are one of our favorite small bite ingredients, and we have received rave reviews on these small and tasty mouthfuls. Plump, sweet and chewy dates can be complemented in a variety of ways. Take a look at these two preparations for inspiration.

Both variations are wonderful to serve at a cocktail party and fun to pair with Watermelon Bites.

Medjool dates frequently referred to as the “king of dates” or the “crown jewel of dates”, are exceptionally large and very sweet.
