Linda corrected me: She wouldn’t ring the doorbell.
They left us a box with 36 large Hachiya persimmons.
Dehydrating persimmons is simple. Wash the fruit. Core the top stem out. Trim off any blemishes. Slice thin (about 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick). Each fruit fills one dehydrator tray. Stack in a dehydrator for 10-14 hours.
The beauty is that not-quite-ripe fruit loses its astringency and turns into candy jerky.
And here is your dilemma: Dry the fruit thoroughly so it has a long unrefridgerated shelf life. OR…Leave the fruit slightly plump and store it in the refrigerator.
