Author Notes: Persimmons pulp is very gelatinous and thick, on the verge of jam, even. I found 3 persimmons in the freezer, buried under countless bananas, just asking to be turned into jam. It's a loose jam, great on toast, and probably spooned into yogurt, I bet.
Stash your on-the-verge-of-ripe fuyu persimmons in the freezer until solid. Defrost. Slice across the equator. Scrape out the pulp with a thin-edged spoon. Discard any seeds. —mrslarkin
