A Filipino friend visited today and brought me four beautiful persimmons. I often think I have made everything imaginable food wise, but I have never even tasted a persimmon. I googled and found a bunch of recipes for sweet baked goods like steamed pudding, quick breads, etc. Nothing very interesting. I also searched CH and came up with some good technical info but no interesting savory recipes.
My question is this. Our Filipino friend will be coming to spend a day with us next weekend and I would like to use them. Does anyone know of a traditional savory Filipino dish using persimmons? These are the fugu type and are quite hard. A week should bring them up to speed, right?
