Wonderful, here in Bengal we are very very fond of Khejurer gud...
the gud made from date palm juice...
and sandesh and rasagullas made with the newly made khejurer gud
is much prized and appreciated , we always look forward to it...
its only produced in winter, which is good since then it stays in
otherwise in summer it melts in heat and high humidity...
and dates themselves provide much needed sugar, roughage,
and micronutrients like calcium, magnesium and potassium...
phosphorous ...among other lesser quantities ...
