persimmons {defined}

Do persimmons make you pucker? Maybe you're eating the wrong kind! My whole life I've thought persimmons were pretty & festive, but to eat, no thanks, too tart and filmy. Now there's a basket in my office filled to the brim with the pretty orange fruits, and suprise, they taste like a sweet orange apple. So, here's the breakdown of the varieties; Fuyu, these are apple shaped & sweet. Hachiya, these are acorn shaped and used for baking. This recipe for Persimmons & Pine Nut Bread (shown above) would be a treat with a cup of tea.
