Pitted Sayer Dates

Dates are sweet brown fruits grown on date palm trees. They are found abundant in Middle Eastern countries such as Iran. Dates are a staple diet to the people of the region due to their innate composition of nutrients and many other healthy elements. Sayer dates are among the sweetest kinds of dates cultivated in Iran. They contain several minerals, including potassium, calcium, and iron; elements that have been proven to prevent bone-related diseases. Sayer dates are very versatile in use. They are often eaten out-of-hand, as an ingredient in several foods and deserts, or paired with other foods, such as almonds as a healthy filling snack.
