30 Bananas a Day!

Dates are new-ish to me. I've been eating medjools & love them. Can someone explain what a good date should look like? Is white stuff on the exterior normal? Squishiness/goopyness? I have some super fresh dates that are somewhat gelatinous. Are these still ok to eat? How do you know when a date is bad? I had a few that were rock hard/dry & thought they must be bad. Also, what's the best storage method? Right now I have some in a glass jar in the refrigerator and also in a glass jar unrefrig.

Whoa, only a few sugar crystals? 50%-70% of my Bautista dates have sugar crystals in them...if those are really sugar crystals, that is. The little white hard clumps gathered together in one region, more like. :)

Are the winey ones bad? For some reason, they taste like sex--so not kidding--when I eat them, but I smell winey for the rest of the day after they digest. Huh...are they really fermenting inside me? I don't feel drunk! :P


Also, how long can they be left out and not worryingly ferment?

Depends how much they've fermented, I bought some from a market once that were seriously alcoholic. They tasted like rum which some people would love but honestly they made me feel light headed! They must have been sitting around for a long time, dates usually keep a long time even at room temperature. 


The only thing to watch out for in my experience is black mould on the inside, it's rare but nasty when you accidently bite into one. I find it's more common with the smaller varieties and almost unknown with medjools 

Thanks, Alex. I'm wondering if you can offer some insight on when to know if they've fermented or not. Is a large number of sugar crystals on the date skins indicative of fermentation? If not, then are crystallized dates still not fermented...and how is that even possible?
Simple, they taste like alcohol. It depends on your source but it's rare that you get fermented dates, they have to be left around for a long time unrefridgerated which rarely happens. Sugar crystals are annoying but it doesn't mean they've fermented, I think it happens when they are heated too much
huh? You mean the taste of bodily fluids during sex? Sorry, not meaning to be crude but, can you clarify? Lol:p

Yep...they really do taste exactly like sex fluids (you know that lovely combination smell after sex, lol?) to me!


But then again, celery smells like sweat to me. Am I the only one?!

Haha, I'm thinking more very compatible sex. ;) It's a great smell, imo...it just shocked me quite a bit the first time I smelled it.
