The Persimmon. How? No, seriously, I’d really like to know. It befuddles me. How in the heck is it that for so long I’ve been denied even mention, much less the fruit, of the delicacy that is a Persimmon?
Good grief, these things are fantastic! I was talking landscaping with a friend who insisted I stop by and see his yard. Touring through, he picked some from a tree and we took them inside to peel and eat. Dubious at first, the look of pure enjoyment of my face as I bit in caused him to laugh, then beam with pride. Rightfully so, if you ask me.
What can be done with them… jellies? Pies? Juice coolers? I’ve brought one to work each day now (he sent me home with a sackfull). They’re a marvelous midday snack but, deprived for so long, I want to make sure I’m not missing out on anything else.
One last question… how many can I eat before I risk OD?
