Jujube is the the Chinese date, that is full of fresh fiber,
and only available from later Summer to early Fall.
They resemble themselves more of a tiny apple, dry and crunchy,
but perfumed much like a pear, with a pit in the middle.
A small commitment for chubby little hands.
They have proven to be a great asset to the four and
five year old community. I've seen it!
Fresh and firm, make for the best bite, but soft all the way
down to dry and wrinkled, they are still fine. The laundry list
of health benefits are just too long too list, so find you way to
trust, that they are good for you with many medicinal traits;
Sleep being just one. Find them at your local Farmer's market,
take them home, and place them in a bowl that sits nicely in your lap.
Take them in...chomp, chomp, crunch...instead of potato chips!
