[Sca-cooks] Dates

One more question (and I feel really silly asking this one):

How should dates be stored?  I have searched the web with as many different ways of phrasing "How should dates be stored" with no real luck.  I keep getting references to storing data!

I feel like if I put them in the refrigerator, they will get sticky from the humidity.  However, leaving them in their box on the counter doesn't seem quite right either.  They arrived in only a box with a piece of celophane folded over them.

Thanks again,

I was the happy recipient of a box of dates brought back from Dubai by a co-worker.  (It WAS a 2 pound box.    I now have about a pound and a half left.) They are huge, moist and delicious.  Not at all like the stale dried up things you get in boxes in the local supermarket.  I would like to make something with them this weekend to bring into the office Monday to share the bounty.  I've looked at recipes for standard date nut breads and variations on the theme, but I am searching for something slightly outside the norm.  Do any of you have a recipe that the modern masses might enjoy, but is not the same old same old?
