    Annacia's Note:

    In the season of Ramadan one of the traditional foodstuffs of the holiday are dates. The date market in Cairo is full to overflowing with a variety of dates in all shapes and sizes during this festive season. Date palm paintings can be found in the tombs of the Pharaohs, indicating that this stately tree and sweet fruit has been cultivated in Egypt since the time of hieroglyphs. Here is a simple but sweet recipe.
