Memorial Day cliche'

Programming legend Lee Abrams sent out the following “think piece” to his e-mail list today (reprinted with permission):

“For your [Memorial Day] holiday media amusement…

“Woke up today — watched Chicago’s channels 2, 5, 7, 9 as well as Weather Channel, CNN, and others. The big story:
‘Holiday traffic.’ Yet EVERY station did it the SAME way:

“Interview with the distressed traveller in front of the departure monitor at a major airport… Whining about delays… Reporter talking about the heavy traffic expected… Stock film of a 737 takeoff… A smarmy comment and ‘Back to you, Bob…’

“Other than the SAME format for the story on every station, that’s been used for 40+ years, there’s no usable information.

“Imagine graphics giving you REAL facts: Best/worst travel hours… expected delays… insights on coping IF you are travelling. OR a simply more interesting interpretation of the story — as pilots, we know of dozens of very cool graphic presentations of air traffic congestion.

“The point: This is media autopilot at its best… when it’s NOT hard to make this omnipresent story interesting and informative.”


Kurt again. So, the question this could raise is this: What are YOU doing that’s an overworked and outdated cliche’ that, if you applied a little creativity, you could do much better?

Dates are among the sweetest fruits in the world. And fresh ones are a far cry from the sugared, desiccated, chopped ones sold in boxes on the shelves of grocery store baking aisles. I've outlined some key points about fresh dates below, including, of course, some tasty ideas on how to use them.

What Are Fresh Dates?
Dates are the fruit of date palms, which themselves come in many more varieties than anyone only familiar with dried chopped dates might imagine.

If you've never had a freshly harvested date, they are worth seeking out for their insanely sweet, caramel-like taste and—this is where they differ most from dried dates—their soft, downright luscious texture.

That said, most dates are allowed to hang on the trees to "cure" and dry a bit before being harvested so they will last longer once picked. These are the "fresh dates" available at many specialty grocery stores, and they are also perfectly, utterly delicious.

When Can I Get Fresh Dates?
Since palm trees grow best in the desert, the U.S. crop of dates is grown in the deserts of California and Arizona. The U.S. harvest then takes place between September and March.

Where Can I Find Fresh Dates?
Farmers markets in Southern California and Arizona may have fresh dates in season; they are also available mail order from some growers and may be found at specialty stores and, often, Middle Eastern markets, since dates play a significant role in the cuisine of many Middle Eastern countries.

How to Choose Iran Dates
Fresh dates can be wrinkled, but they shouldn't feel hard. Look for fresh dates that are plump looking and have a slightly glossy look to their skin. Avoid dates that have crystallized sugar on their skins (a little whiteness is okay, but not actual crystals), since that means they are not quite as fresh as you might like.

Types of Dates
There are endless varieties of dates grown in the Middle East. In the U.S. the most commonly available dates are Deglet Noor dates, which are semi-soft, slender, and a bit chewy, and Medjool dates, which are plump and tender. Other varieties may be available at your farmers market if you're lucky enough to have date growers selling there.

Buy Dates: Dates are also classified by when they're harvested since that determines how soft or dry they are. Freshly harvested dates are very soft; as mentioned above, most "fresh dates" for sale in the U.S. have been left on the tree to dry a bit for awhile after they are ripe (and thus last longer after harvest) and these will still be quite soft, but have a bit more of a toothsome quality to them.

How to Store Dates
Fresh dates that have been "cured" are partially dried and will last awhile. Store them in a sealable container at room temperature for up to two months. They will continue to dry out, and their sugars will slowly but surely come to the surface, creating white spots that are sugar, not mold.

How to Use Dates
Fresh dates are, to my mind, best eaten just as they are, with a cup of coffee or mug of tea alongside to cut the sweetness. That said, there are many ways to enjoy them.

The benefits of dates include relief from constipation, intestinal disorders, heart problems, anemia, sexual dysfunctions, diarrhea, abdominal cancer, and many other conditions. Dates are also good for gaining weight. They are rich in several vitamins, minerals and fiber too. These delicious fruits contain oil, calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper and magnesium which are all beneficial for health. Some health specialists have said that eating one day per day is necessary for a balanced and healthy diet.

The massive health benefits of zahedi dates have made them one of the best ingredients for muscle development. People consume them in several ways, such as mixing the paste of the dates with milk, yogurt or with bread or butter to make them even more delicious. The paste is beneficial for both adults and children, especially during a time of recovery from injury or illness.

According to a modern medical survey, it is now accepted that dates are useful in preventing abdominal cancer. Muslims break their fast by eating them and water according to their cultural traditions. This also helps avoid overeating of food once the fast is over. When the body begins to absorb the high nutritional value of the dates, feelings of hunger are pacified. Also, the nervous system can get a lot of help from consuming dates, since they have significant amounts of potassium.

Dates are one of the best sweet and versatile foods that can regulate the digestive process. It can significantly boost energy levels in people within half an hour of consuming it. The American Cancer Society recommends an intake of 20-35 grams of dietary fiber per day, which can be supplied through mazafati dates. It is also said that taking one date per a day will help you to maintain your eye health all your life. They are commonly known to be quite effective in guarding against the problem of night blindness.

Food uses: dates can be eaten plain or used for cooking in chopped form for cakes, sweet, pudding, bread, ice cream, cereal, candy. Surplus date is used in jam, jelly, juice, syrup, vinegar and alcohol.

Medicinal Uses: The fruit, because of its tannin content, can be used medically as a detersive and astringent for intestinal diseases. It can be used as infusion, decoction, syrup or paste and is administered as a treatment for sore throat, colds and bronchial catarrh. It is taken to relieve fever, cystisis, gonorrhea, edema and liver and abdominal diseases. It is also said to counteract alcohol intoxication.Global trade in dates
