Grandmother’s Pantry – D

I opened Grandmother’s pantry and found…

Let’s see…what starts with D. My first thought is not a food but a cut — DICED.

It was after I browsed around in the cookbook index that I decided on delicious D’s for a menu.

Shall we begin with duck? How about adding a dill sauce? I’d like to wash it down with a Daiquiris please.

Actually, the photo below is probably the most common response and has a certain charm and versatility.

These DATES didn’t photograph as well as some other foods — but when added to their friends they tasted fine in cookies.
