I was surprised how many of you have never tasted a Persimmon. I don't know if they grow other places than California. But This is the process I do to end up with delicious Persimmon Bread. I peel them as the skin is rather tough. They have the consistency of a crisp apple to I cut them in pieces and use my food processor.
The persimmon pulp is a beautiful orange.
I use my buttermilk banana bread recipe, and substitute the persimmon pulp instead of the mashed bananas.
If you still doubt if you would like it, stop my kitchen this weekend and we'll have a slice or two with some hot coffee.
