Hoshigaki (Dried persimmon)

hoshigaki
hoshigaki Hoshigaki is a traditional Japanese dried fruit.
It is very sweet and delicious.
Astringent persimmon can't be eaten as fresh.
But astringent persimmon becomes very sweet by drying it.
And it is not astringent after drying.
White powder on the surface is a crystal of glucide of the persimmon.

Kaki is also the french name for it;we eat it in a special way, making a kind of pasty thing with it. (I'll try to find picture of that to explain it better...)

I love your blog. I found it because of Shumi Hanto. I also write about food because I love to cook and take it with me on outdoor adventures. I will follow your blog and make as many of the foods you describe as I can.
