Very Ripe Hachiya Persimmons - Ready to Eat
Don't eat it unless it extremely ripe and mushy, or you will get a mouth full of furry, chalky icki-ness.
Hachiya persimmons are used in baked goods, often puddings. I decided to try muffins.
I adapted my banana nut bread recipe, by substituting honey for the white sugar, and persimmons for the bananas.
Honey Persimmon Muffins
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup buttermilk (yogurt will work, too.)
2 very ripe persimmons, scooped out and mashed or sieved
1 t. soda
1/4 t. baking soda
2 cups less 2 T. flour
1/4 t. salt
1/2 chopped pecans
Then, remove from pan.
