If you’ve never tasted a persimmon, please add it to the top of your to-do list this week. They’re in their prime ripeness this time of year, and the flavor is really unlike any other fruit. I first fell in love with the small orange delights during my time in Israel years ago, where they were so fresh, I ate them like candy while exploring the country. Fortunately, they’re available here in Texas, and we’ve got a bowl of persimmons piled high on our kitchen counter… a perfectly seasonal snack that’s considerably more nutritious than the decadent cakes and pies that seem to be ubiquitous this time of year (although, who am I kidding… keep those coming too!) Inspiring autumnal notions of cozy knits and cool weather, in my mind the persimmon is as “fall” as you can get… who’s with me?!
