Persimmon. The Fruit, not the Colour.

Sometimes, when my husband and I go grocery shopping, I like to buy something new from the produce section, something I haven't tried before. This week, it was a persimmon. I know that I love the colour, especially coming into fall, but I had no idea what it was, how it tastes or what to do with it. So, I picked through them, found, what I thought, was a lovely specimen and brought it home with me. Now I just have to figure out what to do with it! Should you have any suggestions please let me know!

I have no clue what to do with them, but I agree - they are really pretty!

wait until it's so soft you think you can't even hold it (but before it starts going brown)....then eat it, it's so juicy and yummy...you can kinda just take a bite and suck all the fruit out. It's a pretty sexy fruit:)
If it seems bitter it wasn't ready yet.
