We recently moved to a home that has a persimmon tree in the yard. From what I've read they won't be ready until October, so I've begun a slow search for things to do with them as persimmons are not something I've ever been familiar with. Most of the recipes I've found on line have been for baking (cakes, cookies) and puddings, but we're not big dessert eaters or makers. Are there savory things that persimmons are good for (I've seen a chutney-type recipe)?
Any and all suggestions appreciated. (BTW -We're not certain what variety they are, but the few on the tree late last fall were squat in shape..... if that helps).
