We’ve been blessed this year to have a house with date palm trees, alhamdulillah:
On the first day of Ramadan the boys got some dates from the tree:
Their haul, alhamdulillah.
So far, we’ve broken all our fasts with dates and water, ma sha Allah and we’ve only eaten about half the dates.
We Made Date Cake
….and we love Date Milk
…. the kids love to make date milk by pitting dates, and boiling them in water to form a runny paste then adding milk and straining it.
