VeMoFo#7: Jujubes

Really really really short post today.  (One can only ignore essays for so long).


I bought some fresh jujube dates yesterday.  Not like the little shrivelly things that come in the medicinal chinese soup packets (which are awesome, but different), no... more like crisp quince/apple-texture and date-flavour.  With a little olive-stone inside.  PLUS, resemblance to dinosaur eggs!  Neat.

That's all.

Oh, except that I bought more nut butter.  mmmmmmmmmmmmm nuttery buttery.  It's gonna be spice cake icing for this weekend, Thanksgiving.

I've never heard of that fruit! crazy. i'm doing an elimination diet currently to see if i have any food sensitivities so PB is off the table at the moment. I have a new found love for cashews (CB) because of it!

Wow, where'd you get a hold of those? Not that it matters much to me being a 20 hours drive away, but it's still fun to know. They look awesome!

I never heard of those before! They look kind of like olives.

Love that you've compared your food to dinosaur eggs. One of the reasons your blog is high on my list of favourites!

Cashew butter is my favorite nut butter, and cashew butter icing is my favorite kind of icing! I think I'll go nut butter shopping tomorrow.

so interesting! i like that they share their name with the awful, impossible to chew candy pellets, but seem infinitely more awesome.
