At the home of a senior farmer who has been working with me ever since I started farming in Akiu, there were many persimmons growing on a large tree in the backyard. However, because the trees are too big, it is difficult to harvest them, and sometimes they cannot eat all of them, so I heard that they spend their days in fear of the bears coming when the persimmons ripen. Thinking that there might be other farmers like this, the owner of the farm decided to harvest persimmons that could not be harvested in the garden and were being targeted by bears and turn them into sliced ​​dried persimmons.

This astringent persimmon is a type of persimmon called Hirakinamugaki, and since it is dried when it is almost fully ripe, it has a very sweet taste. Sliced ​​dried persimmons are the perfect size for snacks, appetizers, and cooking. Not only can you eat it as is, but you can also use it as a snack with cream cheese or butter, or chop it into small pieces and use it as an ingredient in making sweets. How about shredding persimmons for New Year's Day?

When I first tasted this sliced ​​dried persimmon, I instinctively thought, ``It goes well with coffee!'' and I was right. Although the sweetness was gentle and refreshing, it had a rich aftertaste that rivaled black coffee.While chocolate was good, I thought persimmon was also good.
