    Persimmons???

    A good friend sent a box of persimmons and clementines to me.

    What the heck do you do with these persimmons? The texture is not all that great to just eat them.

    There's persimmon cookies, cakes, and I had a recipe for a very rich and delicious persimmon fudge. You can always send them to me. LOL

    Persimmons are delicious. Sweet and smooth. Make great pudding and cookies. Great just for eating out of hand when they are ripe. When they are not ripe, they have an astringent taste that makes your mouth feel furry. I used to have a tree and after the first frost would go and collect them before the squirrels and birds got to them. Delicious!

    My mother use to buy a box every year. She loved them. If they are ripe to perfection then they are soft and very sweet inside. If they are not ripe..they leave a yukky feeling at the roof or your mouth. Personally I don't care for them enough to buy any. Maybe in a recipe they would be good. I never knew you could do anything bake wise with them!!

    I let them get really, really ripe and then scoop out the pulp, remove any seeds, freeze in one cup portions. I have one son that goes bonkers for persimmon cookies so I make them for him every year. I have some persimmon pulp that has been frozen for three years and it still is good! I, personally, don't care to eat them, but LOVE to use them in cooking. they work well in a bread recipe too. Lots on internet.

    That is good to know about the fuzzy feeling in your mouth. That is exactly what hubby said after eating one when we first got them a couple days ago. I will try to bake with them in a few days and also freeze them like wendiq said to do. Thanks everyone! I knew you all would come through or me. I do a lot of baking during the holidays, so I will try it.
