Dates soaked in ghee are a great snack. Dates increase vitality and strengthen immunity. Also great for Ojas, the fine essence of kapha.


Slice the dates in half and remove pits. Quarter the dates if you want smaller bites sized pieces. Fill a jar with dates and pour ghee over them. Add cardamom and/or cinnamon. Soak for 1 day to 2 weeks. Will keep indefinitely unrefrigerated. Best for Vata types or in the winter when you may need more nourishment. Dig in!
