A Dried Japanese Persimmon Class
November 5 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Ancient Japanese food art of Hoshigaki turns hachiya persimmons into an amazing, shelf-stable delicacy. The process is all done through patient hanging and massaging of the fruit. The process is listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste under “Japanese Hand-Massaged Persimmons.”
Evan Gregoire, owner of Portland Seedhouse is one of few dedicated farmers who perpetuate the tradition. We will provide the fruit and special bamboo hanging pole, while giving instructions and demonstrate how you can do this successfully at home.
