How to "Cure" & Cook Unripe Cut Persimmon?

lisaleira | Nov 12, 202010:54 PM     4

Hello!!

I have been used to the small persimmons that you eat hard, and not used to the larger persimmons in Turkey that must be eaten soft. So, I cut up a hard one and had the mouth puckering experience from the tannins. I'm wondering if there's some way I can use the persimmon, by curing it so that it's not so astringent? I read about bezoars and the dangers of unripe persimmons so want to be careful, given my own sensitive digestion. I read about using vinegar or alcohol to cure persimmons but it wasn't clear if they were cut or whole persimmons, or how much to use (like to immerse it entirely in vinegar, or a dilution of vinegar?). Would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions!

Also recipe ideas of course :) Thinking of persimmon bread..

Merci chowies <3
