Polenta Pizza With Heirloom Tomatoes and Summer Squash
The texture of Fuyu persimmons is crisp yet tender with a sweet flavor. They can be used as a substitute for apples or pears. You can eat them fresh out of hand or add to cold appetizers and salads, use as a topping in pizza, make pies, tarts and even ice cream.
Fuyus go well with cranberries, pomegranates, ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, cream, brown sugar, maple, soft cheeses, pecans, pistachios, bacon, proscuitto, figs, mild lettuces and bitter greens. They blend well with herbs such as basil, arugula and mint. They also go well with citrus.
One way to consume very ripe persimmons, which can have a very soft texture, is to remove the top leaf with a paring knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.
