New Experience In Yummyness

Try this experiment next time your at the supermarket: pay a little more and pick up a couple of persimmon fruits. The ones I just tried were yellowish-orange and a bit soft. They had a fairly nasty looking leafy growth on the top, where the stem should be.

Elizabeth bought us some as part of a gift, and they turn out to be incredibly delicious. Why have I waited my whole life to try such a tasty fruit?

Persimmons are even easy to prepare - we sliced them in quarters and ate the innards out, tossing the skin. There was no gigantic pit in the center you need to navigate (yes, I'm looking at you mango). Just pure goodness.

My taste buds really thank you Elizabeth - what a terrific treat.
