Fuyu Persimmon Cake with Carmalized Brown Sugar Topping

Cynthia Rivers Martinez


This type of persimmons is not simiular to the Hachiya persimmon in consistancy. This is the kind we grow in FL. I also found recipes on the net for them from CA. This type of persimmon needs to be blanched and peeled like a tomatoe. It is then grated, sliced or diced. It the firmness and likes of an apple.
