My favorite fruit

Before coming to Japan, I had no idea what a persimmon was. Now, it’s my favorite fruit, and favorite tree. We’ve eaten persimmons almost every night in salads this November, now that the fruit is ripe. Because we have a tree in our yard, I’ve tried different persimmon recipes. I recently made persimmon pudding, which tastes a lot like zucchini bread. Click here for some recipes.
