Christmas Persimmon



About a week ago, I bought two Hachiya persimmons and put them on the kitchen windowsill.  They were patient models for my camera snapping in their faces all week, but one of them came into its own this morning when it adorned our usual Special Sunday Brunch plates.  The other awaits its turn in a few days.

The jalapeño pepper cheesy polenta, poached duck eggs, hot breakfast sausage, and French toast were happy to have the newcomer on board.  It was a great treat – a bit of color and sweetness to put this brunch in the “Oh, My – that is sooo delicious” category!

  1. I still didn’t encounter a good persimmon this year, but I haven’t given up on them.
    Glad you had better luck with them. The persimmon looks perfectly ripe.
    Such a great addition to this wonderful looking breakfast! I’m especially interested in the jalapeño pepper cheesy polenta! Yum! 🙂

      There was a big pile of them in the ethnic-ish grocery store I favor for fresh produce. I was able to get them easily when we lived in California, and learned to babysit them until at the perfect “water balloon” stage. There is one left! Shall I save it for you?

      • Such a kind offer! However, if we’ll calculate the price of going from NY to Arizona, this will definitely be the most expensive persimmon ever! 🙂
        You’re right about letting it ripe, though I’m also a big fan of a type that is harder and eaten like an apple. It is abundant in Israel, but the price of going there right now will make it even more expensive! Guess I need to keep on looking around! 🙂

        The crisper ones are called “fuyu”; not as firm as an apple, but most delicious in salads. Those are available here, too. I forgot to do a post on them when I had them here. I’ll need to repeat the purchase. They were but $.79 each for either kind.

      • Now I’m even more motivated in finding them. Whole Foods, here I come! 🙂
