One of Tiffany’s rules of life
Chopping dried dates is a sticky, time consuming, delicate job. It requires a sharp knife, a special technique, and time.
Pre-chopped dates are terrible — dry, woody, gross. Convenience versions of foods which were once revered have made eating a sad affair. Do not participate in the perpetuation of the abomination of food and eating.
Make a space, make the time, and do it right.
