Fall means the very short season for fresh persimmons is upon us. Which means its time to make these Fall Persimmon Recipes.
Stock up now on fresh persimmons when you see them at your local farmer’s market or grocery store. Some persimmons are meant to be eaten like an apple, sliced while still slightly firm. That would be the Fuyu persimmon. The Hatchiya persimmon, on the other hand, needs to be super soft and ripe for its full flavor to be enjoyed.
Whatever variety of persimmon you have, they are suitable to use in these recipes. Just be sure the Hachiya are super soft and the Fuyu are sweet and ripe when you use them.
I started thinking of what other things I would eat for a birthday feast, and came up with a menu for my birthday. Mind you, I didn’t actually make all of these things, just the ribs. But I am going to be ready for next year!
Spring time is here! Some of my favorite fresh vegetables and herbs are showing up in the farmer’s markets and grocery stores everywhere. Artichokes, asparagus, tomatoes and spring peas, all fresh from the farm.
These five salads showcase some of these vegetables, and are perfect both for serving along with grilled foods or as a meal in themselves.
2015, where did you go? It seems like just yesterday you came into my life. And now, you are ready to depart, leaving me behind. But with all honesty, I am ready to let you go!
Thank you to my readers for riding along with me on this journey of food, family and fun. At times my creativity flowed, other times I just couldn’t even get a drip of creativity going. But looking back at some of my top posts for 2015, I am proud of these recipes, and hope you enjoyed making them as much as I did.
