Thread: Using up persimmons

    Default Using up persimmons

    Made some persimmon bread yesterday from a recipe I've had for awhile.
    Put them in the big oven and baked them, came out just right. Then found
    a good recipe for persimmon bread in Beth Hensperger's bread machine
    recipe book. Made a banana nut bread today. All are for the Altar
    Society bake sale on Saturday and Sunday. Ladies there generally get a
    good price for my dessert breads and cookies. Miz Anne is going to make
    a couple of persimmon pies tomorrow for the same sale.

    Rest of the persimmons are still ripening on an old towel on the counter
    in the kitchen. Three or four every day and then I pulp them and package
    them. Another friend called today and offered us another bucket of them.
    Couldn't handle anymore as we already have about fourteen cups in the
    freezer and at least that much more ready to ripen. That is a year's
    supply for us.

    From the looks of the fall garden we will pick green beans again
    tomorrow to blanch and freeze. Never have enough green beans at our
    house. It's amazing what a ten foot row of beans can produce over a
    two-month period.

    It is getting cold down here today and tonight. Would someone please
    close the gate between us and Canada.

    I've just been give some persimmons. 4 more left to ripen and it will
    be persimmon jam making time. I've been freezing the pulp as they
    ripen. Haven't made it since 2007. Found the recipe I used, I printed
    it on bright orange paper so I wouldn't miss it in my binder.

    They also make excellent pies, cookies, and sweet breads, not to mention
    cakes Mimi. We found persimmon jam to somewhat bland so the next batch I
    made I added ground cardamon, turned out very nice.

    Would anyone know how long it takes for a newly planted
    Takahashi (sp?) persimmon tree to produce? The one we
    planted was what you might call a "standard", that is
    tall and straight in the pot, and it has since grown
    that way, up straight without too many branches so far.

    The first year, we got about 4 or 6 beautifuly delicious
    persimmons, but the last year or two it has just been
    growing. Just wondering if we will get any this year, it
    looks like there may be some buds on it.

    Without knowing where you live and the climate it would be hard for
    someone to tell you that Jim.

    All the Japanese persimmons are hardy to very cold climates. The two
    varieties I am familiar with are the Fuyu ,round, like an apple, can be
    eaten like an apple and ripens on the tree; and the Hachiya, heart
    shaped, ripens after being picked and can only be eaten once it softens
    greatly. Not familiar with the Takahashi at all. Have you tried a Google
    search for your variety and it's fruit setting habits?
