I just figured another way how to eat a persimmon!!
Pardon my ignorance, I always thought persimmon is a crunchy type fruit like apple and pear and there is no other way to have it beside the crunch. Since I don't really fancy apple and pear, persimmon become the least favorite too.
Not till one fine day, mom in law teach me how to eat a persimmon, her way. Hahaha TEACH okkk!!
Ok lah, I am just exaggerating. That day she offered me some persimmon in the fridge and I refused by saying I don't really fancy persimmon. Then she insisted and took out one for me, it was when I touched it and I almost screaming
"Haaaa apsal dia lembik? Boleh makan ke?"
Haha ok..I did say that but not screaming la. More like asking :P
So the rest is history hihihi
And now I'm showing you the new way I just discovered on eating a persimmon
At a normal rate, persimmon sold will be firm and hard. Hard enough for you to squeeze and not leaving any mark.
So you have to keep it outside until it is fully ripen. My persimmon took 3 weeks to achieve the 'lembikness' that I wanted. One tip to remember, don't worry if you persimmon looks rotten as it is actually not. Only the skin getting darker and paler but inside is eatable. Once it is soft (lembik to be exact) keep it in the fridge and it can last for another week.
The skin is edible too I think, but I didn't dare to take the risk :P
And it is serioussslyyyy sangat sedappp!! It is sweet and soft and runny with some bits of crunchy fibre and COLD! This will be my ultimate way of eating a persimmon. No more cut it like apples after this.
Hmm thinking about this, I have one in my fridge ready to be eaten tonite :D
