Now that I understand the Persimmon, lol,...........
I'm not sure how many of You have ever actually tried a Persimmon, but I tried one for the first time today.
What a Wonderful Surprise!
My Vietnamese neighbor across the strEEt, brings them to Me
(he's always bringing us fruits and vegatables that He grows Him Self,
as weLL as the pLants to grow)
The Persimmon fruits that He brings are of the Hachiya variety.
It gets all squishy, like an over ripe tomato, (they haPPen to look like a tomato too)
but those are the ripe ones.
And You think, No way!
You split the skin and can scOOp the inside out with a spOOn and eat it, just like that.
What I did was set them out on a plate, on Their tops, as They ripened I would move Them to another plate with a bowl on top (to keep those nasty fruit flies off). They all ripened pretty quickly and mostly together.
Look at that Beautiful pattern on the inside.
I cut Them in half, ScOOped Them out,
That way I have plenty of PuLP to use in any recipe.
I'm for sure going to make a PuDDing, and there was a Persimmon Walnut bread I want to try.
Here's to New Things.
