Bateel dates are some of my favourite dates. Great for iftar, dates are one of the few foods that have a high sugar content and yet, are good for you at the same time. Freshly picked and placed into a handcrafted wooden box.
Bateel is an Arabic word that refers to the young off-shoot of a date palm, which can be used to grow a new tree. I was pleased to see a Bateel shop also in Zorlu Centre in Istanbul last year.
