Just finished a frozen medjool date as a late-night snack. So it is appropriate to post this one:
Thank you to my sister's husband's brother-in-law's mother-in-law (by easy logic you should have quickly shortened that confusing connection to this woman is also my sister's mother-in-law) for sharing this. The woman who shared this did go to Woodstock, after all, so it's gotta be good!
And here is the article in Jewcy from a few years ago that explains it all.
Nina Simone passed away nearly 9 years ago and was known as the "high priestess of soul."
In case you didn't catch the connection with the intro to this blog post about medjool dates, the translation for "Eretz zavat halav u'dvash" is Land of milk and honey. But the honey isn't bee honey but the honey that comes from the date tree.
