So this year I was reading online again and came across people discussing drying sliced persimmons and discussing making Hoshi Gaki, a Japanese dried-persimmon. I was hooked! We tried drying some sliced and not-quite-ripe specimans several days ago in the food dehydrator. It is like eating candy! I love it! We also have hung several persimmons and are drying them in the Hoshi Gaki method. I’ll get a picture up in a few days. The tree is almost ready for a fruit harvest and usually the persimmons are all ripe within a few days, so we will dry what we can in the dehydrator, freeze a few, and hang the rest up to make Hoshi Gaki.
