Default persimmons

Somebody gave us a persimmon. I assume you're supposed to eat them, but how? Just peel and eat it, cook it, never seen one before.

You have already had your first frost? If that is not completely ripe be ready for your lips to pucker.

I live in Alaska. We've had snow for 2 weeks. We don't have persimmons tho. Do you cook them? Or just eat them raw?

You haven't had a frost yet? We've had frost for the past couple weeks.

It's been great here too. 60-65 during the day but at night it's been getting cool. Had a few nights just above freezing but tonight the low is to be 40 so tomorrow morning's hunt should be warm.

Back to the original post- they are talking about WILD persimmons- when unripe (first frost) they are incredibly astringent- like sucking on a styptic pencil. About size of a golfball. Yours is probably a cultivated, non-astringent. You can use them in cookies or cakes, but they can be eaten like any fruit. Try this for a salad:

Persimmon and Apple Salad
Makes 6 servings
Each serving equals 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetables

Ingredients

1 Tbsp walnut pieces, toasted
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp sherry vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 sweet variety apples, rinsed, cored, and thinly sliced lengthwise
3 firm-ripe Fuyu persimmons, rinsed, stemmed, and thinly sliced lengthwise

In a bowl, combine orange juice, vinegar, and olive oil. Add apples, persimmons, and toasted walnuts and mix to coat.

Nutritional analysis per serving: Calories 90, Protein 0g, Fat 3g, Calories From Fat 29%, Cholesterol 0mg, Carbohydrates 16g, Fiber 3g, Sodium 15mg.

I am convinced that there is nothing that c3 does not know. The man is a vast information bank of knowledge.

Or maybe he's so full of BS that any answer he gives makes sense on some level.
