Freezer Persimmon Jam

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
There are different types of persimmons: fuyu, which can be eaten firm and look like a tomato; hachiya, which is not edible until fully ripen and naturally crack, and looks like a giant acorn. This recipe should work well for the fuyu type. I followed a recipe that has almost the same ingredients, with added pectin and I canned them in a water bath. They came out a delicious jam, a bit tasting like pumpkin butter. I never tried making jam out of the hachiya type. They are too sweet to be processed - I feel any processing is a waste of this fruit. The trouble with hachiya is they are quite unpleasant if not fully ripen. However here is a trick: freeze hachiya persimmons that are not fully ripe. Te freezing process destroy the tannin and they can be eaten as is when thawed.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
These are so good! I used baking soda and baking powder, used less sugar, and they are delicious! I also tried using coconut sugar and it makes a nice dark brown color, almost like brown sugar cookies with a coconut structure,
