We don't have a lot to eat from the garden at the moment. B has all of the new fall vegetables coming up, but it will probably be at least a month before we will be able to taste anything (*fingers crossed*). In the meantime, I will be completely and totally satisfied by these beauties. Lovely, crisp, sweet persimmons.
If you have never tried persimmons, pick up a few the next time you are at the farmer's market. They are all over right now. I don't really like the softer, heart-shaped Hachiya persimmons (they are OK to bake with...my mom would bake breads and cookies with them). I like the Fuyus pictured above. I read somewhere that they taste like a sweet apple dusted with cinnamon. Not exactly, but that's sort of close. They are really good in salads and with cheese. We like slicing them up and snacking on them while watching a movie.
