About this event
Join us at Bird Valley Farm on Sunday, December 12th from 12 - 2:00 pm for a fun afternoon learning the ancient Japanese practice of preserving persimmons, known as Hoshigaki. These are easy to make and when cured properly develop a fantastic jammy consistency that pairs well with charcuteries , pastries and tea.
We will be using the Hachiya variety of persimmon and learning about how to prepare it for the 3-5 weeks it takes to be properly preserved.
The process is well worth the efforts and Hoshigaki makes wonderful gifts!
Penny Ellis will be instructing us in how to make the hoshigaki. Our workshop includes a box of 8 persimmons, supplies and instructions for making & curing the Hoshigaki.
