I recently was gifted a bushel basket of ripe Fuyu Persimmons. They were excellent eaten raw. I later cut them in thin slices and used my dehydrator to make Persimmon chips. They turned out perfectly, and are delicious! I also made a Persimmon Syrup to use for pancakes. That was good, but we still like our old Maple syrup and Coconut syrups the best.
