***Every few years I re-post this recipe on my blog for all my new readers. I hope you enjoy! Oh, and make sure to read the comments for other ways to cook with these persimmons!
Each fall I look forward to a call from one of my former clients, letting me know it’s persimmon time!
Her very large and very old persimmon tree has been generous (to say the least) with its persimmons over the years. I always take several dozen to pass along to friends and neighbors, but make sure to keep some for myself, as well.
Not only are they beautiful to set out during the holidays, but they provide my family with a season’s worth of the yummiest cookies.
Most people don’t really know what to do with Hachiya persimmons, as their previous experiences usually involve biting into a firm one (thinking its the flatter Fuyu variety that you can just directly chomp into for a delicious snack) and suffering one of the worst, puckery mouth-moments of their lives!
