Persimmon Tart Recipe of 01-11-2019 [Updated on 04-11-2019]
There Persimmon cobbler is the last recipe I made with this sometimes forgotten fruit. After preparing a cake and also the jam based on persimmon vanilla, I decided to try changing and using gods persimmon apple for this tart. For the uninitiated, persimmons, or lotuses, exist in these two main varieties: vanilla persimmons are the classic soft persimmons, which are still hard and unripe and are left to mature in boxes so that the natural concentration of tannins is lower; apple persimmons, on the other hand, can be eaten as soon as they are picked as they have a much lower content of tannins.
The result was a fragrant and flavorful tart, which was very popular with the family! ... And what kind of persimmon do you prefer?

I met many people who otherwise did not even know existed and with some of them I made a friendship that goes beyond the virtual world of the web. Furthermore, I also had some satisfactions from the "working" point of view in the sense that I have had occasions that I have to define stimulating and full of satisfactions to say the least!
