If you’ve spent any time in our tearoom in the fall of any year, you may have noticed that persimmons are a particular favorite of ours. They made a regular appearance as table decorations and display accents. We also served them as a fruit snack to accompanied our oolongs.
Last year we hung a handful of the Hachiya varieties on the ceiling of our tearoom to see if they dry up nice and tasty. This year we decided to hang about 200, the full capacity of our tearoom seating area, so we can share them with you.
Persimmons are delicious as they are auspicious. They are round, plump, sweet and bright in color. The Chinese name for persimmons (Shi 柿) resembles the word (Shi 事) in pronunciation, which means matters, affairs, business. A collection of sweet, plump and bright persimmons signify joyous and successful affairs in the new year.
Slice them up like dried fruit and enjoy them plain with your pot of tea, add them to your cheese plate, or put them in your morning yogurt. There is no wrong way to serve these jammy treats.
Each box includes
5 x dried Hachiya persimmons, individually wrapped in cello bag.
Produced in a facility that processes wheat, milk, egg, soy, tree nuts, & peanuts.
The Persimmons will remain fresh at room temperature for 90 days.
