Went to the farmers market yesterday and bought a bunch of hachiya persimmons (the large heart-shaped ones that cant be eaten until fully ripe). They are now finally ripe and in abundance. A gift to us from the gods. Maybe it was a persimmon instead of an apple or quince that Paris gave to Aphrodite. They have so much sugar in them that if you freeze them now, you can take them out in warmer months and eat them with a spoon like sherbet.
