The air is not the only thing that is fresher in the country. That’s true no matter where in the world you are.
Tuesday when we went to the country, to the mountains to Benxi the sky went from SMOG to clear blue beautiful skies! The other thing that we got was some fresh dried fruit and nuts! It’s that time of year and even though they are available in all the markets, these things just taste so much better if you get them from the country!
We love the little dried cherry tomatoes, our favorite and they taste like candy. We also picked up some almonds ( salted still in the shell) and some fresh dates. The kind of dates that we have at home, not the red Chinese jujube dates.
I was so excited with our purchase because I came home and made one of David’s favorites…date squares. Yummy!
