Persimmons How to use ?
[Return to Topics]

We have one good persimmon tree that always produces well. Problem is its 50' tall and we have to wait till the fruit drops. Since we already had a frost most of the 'simmons are sweet and not bitter. We can get about a pint every day or so.

We would like to get enough to make some preserves, so we thoght about freezing them till we had a respectable mess.

Will they freeze and still be usable ?

Any tips would be appreciated

Old Timers mashed them flat and dried them in the sun like apples.

They make good persimmon nut bread, just like banana nut bread.

Yes you can freeze the fruit, but I would remove the skin and pits before freezing the "meat" of the fruit. Then you can just get out a ziplock bag of fruit when you want and make bread or other receipe's as you see fit. You can freeze them without removing the skin first, but since you have a few a day might be a task to do when you don't have mass quantities to deal with. Also, a good way to just get the meat out of the fruit is to use one of the triangular collanders that you squish the stuff through using a wooden thing-er-mabob (what the heck are those things called???
