Dried Persimmons

This is a traditional fruit with a unique method of preparation, in which the persimmons are fumigated in sulfur and then dried. A feature of these is that they have a high water content and thus taste somewhat raw, and retain some of the fruit's original sweetness. While they can be eaten as is, they can also be eaten chopped finely and mixed with yoghurt, or mixed with pickled radish. If hung in a cool, well-ventilated location or stored in a refrigerator, these can be kept from three to six months.
