Dates - do you clean them?

edited September 2012 in Other Stuff

I'm wondering, does anyone clean or "sanitize" their dates after buying them from the store? If so, what is good way to do it? I just bit into a bad one - had to spit it out - don't know if it was mold or insects but it was NASTY....made me wonder - should I be cleaning them?


  • Maybe wash them if they aren't organic, to get rid of possible chemical residues. Then sort them, or possibly find a better supplier!

  • Washing your dates won't help inside rot, if you wanna make sure your not going to bite into a bad one open them up, take the pit out and then eat, honestly I can't be bothered just cause of a bad date every now and then..
