Basically a dried red date, the jujube is a fruit grown in Southern Asia. It is a pretty reddish maroon in color, with one large seed in the middle. When dried, the seed can be easily removed and the jujube can be cut up or eaten whole...its sweet like candy either way! Plus, jujube's have all these awesome benefits; they are said to alleviate stress, help with tummy aches, cleanse the blood and liver, prevent sore throat, insomnia, and premature aging, and even act as a diuretic! They are commonly made into a sweet jujube tea or cake...but we liked 'em in our morning oats!

  1. Jujubes aren\’t actually dates. They aren\’t even distant cousins of dates. They only bear the name in English because of their appearance when dried. I lived in China for over a year and had many experiences with Jujubes, whether fresh or dried. Personally, I prefer them fresh and as green as possible. This is almost impossible in the West since they turn red during shipping.

    It\’s exotic, which is something that this blog is going for, but you might as well use dried apple.
