Block dates = stoned blocked dates.
Please list it correctly. These are block dates. List as Whitworths stoned block dates. As a kid we called these block dates. Yup, I,ve been buying them for decades! Have one with my fruit, yog and musli every day. What,s not to like?
appearance deceptive - worked fine in cake recipe
needed these for a sticky toffee cake recipe. Put required amount in saucepan and covered with measured hot tea - left to soak over night. Was able to liquidise and add to cake mix. Worked a treat and flavour good.
Used these for years for Sticky Toffee Pudding etc. Ideal and once upon a time the only dates you could buy that had been stoned. These keep well in the cupboard for ages.
Different from the other Whitworth fruits.
Can't give a proper review - not yet tried the dates. However, it is a solid pack of dates (which it says on the pack) but when you buy online it looks the same as the packs of soft dates. In fact it is quite a different thing. I'm sure it'll be OK for baking but that's not what I thought I was buying. Maybe my fault for coming to a conclusion based on the purchase of Whitworth soft dates which are lovely and the same price!
