Yum, indeed. All your own work, I presume, Suse. Have enjoyed your week in pictures. Hope to meet you the Sunday after next.

Blessings and bliss

Persimmons? I've never tried these. My sister tells me they taste like Avocado, but I'm not quite sure if she's having me on or not! Either way, they look lovely.

Finally, someone I can ask.

What do you do with persimmons?

Suse said...

You cut em up and eat em.

(They taste more like pears I would say ... but mostly they just taste like, well ... persimmons).

I don't even know what to do with THEM. But they'd look nice on a white plate on my table...

Suse said...

And I meant to say, look! Three Melbourne commenters!

I hope to meet all three of you on Sunday week.

Lovely colours and textures.

I have NEVER known what to do with these, though I love to ogle them in the store. So you just eat them raw, then? You don't have to cook them or anything? I wonder if my kids will touch them...?

They taste delish! but they need to be very very ripe.

shula said...

I will probably be standing on my head Sunday week, but if I get an hour off, I will rush down.

They remind me of mangosteins, and the fact that I can't find them in the pacific northwest.

My mum makes persimmon bread - I can ask her for the recipe if anyone is desperate. I personally detest them, but the bread makes them almost bearable.
Now mangosteens on the other hand I adore! But oh so ridiculously expensive here. In Thailand, 60 cents a kilo...
