In the dates I ordered a while back (they are really good dates) when I cut them open, in about 1/3 of them I find little eggs. I'm a little bit of a squeamish so I've just been tossing those.
But I don't like wasting so many dates. Should I just scrape the eggs out and eat them? Is anybody else finding the same thing in their dates? What do you do about it?
Haha, awesome. Although it's like $40 worth of dates, so I don't want to throw them out.
Have you found dates without anything inside them? Where did you buy them?
I too had a shipment of dates recently ( last month) from a very good source and all 10lb had worms...or enough to gross me out about the rest.
I tried to look at it that they're not sprayed,etc and think like a primate or other natural healthy creature. I was totally turned off to dates for a few days though and bummed about the $40 loss....
Now I NEVER just pop a date in my mouth without biting in to check first. Kinda weirds me out how long I just munched away without a thought : )
who did you get them from?
yeah, I had some pitted dates that I never checked...just threw em' in the blender!
So we have a couple votes for throw 'em out, any other voters?
