Persimmon

Coworker Michele gave me two persimmons.  Can somebody tell me the best way to eat it?  I have no clue.  Do you eat it crunchy?  Let it get soft?  Refrigerate?  Do you eat the skin?

This type you eat it crunchy. eat it cold, like a apple, peel the skin and watch for the seeds

OMG !! I miss my students. One of them every year would come with a case of them, sent from his grandmother in Japan. We loved to make persimmon ice cream !!!

I love persimmons..I'm so glad it is the fall season when they're plentiful. I like them when it's a little more soft..but they don't look as pretty w/ black spots on them.

jalna said...

Oooooh that sounds good Jos. I think you're right, it's kaki.

It's good in a salad too! Kind of tomato-y.
