The other day I was in the Korean grocery on 32nd St., and noticed a display of bottles of persimmon vinegar. It was 20 dollars a bottle, and in packaging that indicated that this was Something Serious. Being a big persimmon fan, I was intrigued. I was in a hurry, though, and wasn't able to grab some friendly-looking shopper by the lapels and ask them to explain it to me.
So I ask you all: What's this stuff for? Are there standard traditional uses? And is it worth the price for me to get a bottle and figure out other things to do with it?
