Notes

A co-worker of mine brought in a huge bag of persimmons. Thinking way back in the past how I would be forced to try them at my ex boyfriends house and hated every stinking bite. I thought about it for awhile and said to myself, I am a new woman with very different taste buds now; I want to give them a try.

So to make a long story short, I freaking love them! I made up a recipe and it turned out so good. I don’t think it is for everyone but Mike and I enjoyed it. Not that we have sophisticated palettes or anything but I think this would be a wonderful Thanksgiving side dish or severed with some sort of meat dish like turkey, Cornish hen, or even duck – YUM! This is a sweet dish so keep that in mind. Who knew cooking with fruit would be so yummy!

A dash of local for every season
