Quick Ripen a Persimmon!

Persimmons are a unique soft fruit with Chinese origins, that when ripe, taste like caramel...mmm.

The only problem is that they take forever to ripen (up to 3 weeks)!

To trick this tasty treat into giving up the goods quicker, place a whole Persimmon in the freezer for 10 hours.  Allow to thaw and what you will get is something resembling a water balloon.  That's when you know that your Persimmon is ready!

The frigid temp tricks these little guys into maturing faster!

Eat as you would an apple.

In my neck of the woods (northern hemisphere), Persimmon season is from September through to December.
