Jujubes 干枣 (gān zǎo)

These fruits are sometimes called Chinese dates or red dates. Fresh jujubes resemble small red apples and are often eaten as a snack with tea or added to soups for flavor. They have a sweet and tangy flavor and are sometimes used medicinally to reduce stress and soothe a sore throat. Dried jujubes are sold in bags and can be found at most Asian grocery stores. If you can’t find them, substitute dried dates.
