Get to Know Your Jujubes

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Blog, Twin Girls Farm | Leave a comment

Jujubes make a tasty natural snack all by themselves. They can be eaten in the early ripening stages when the fruit has a yellowish-green shade to it or dried where the fruit has a more rich, red color. Jujubes are high in Vitamin C and have been used in teas and medicines for centuries. The fruits have a mildly sweet flavor and a snappy crunch, making them fun and snacky, without all the corn starch and high fructo factor of conventional snacks. Now in season at MCM from Twin Girls Farm!

Preheat oven to 375. Combine the Almonds, Butter, and Sugar in a food processor until a thick paste forms, and then add Eggs.
