dirt bike man, baby #1 and i went to visit my dad's family in LA last month and we brought home with us 20+ lbs of persimmons!! idk about you, but i love persimmons! but there was no way in heck we'd be able to eat all of them before they went to waste.
so i learned how to turn my oven into a dehydrator and dehydrated the persimmons myself so we can enjoy the fruit longer without them going bad. i would imagine the same technique would work with other fruits too.
simple dried persimmon recipe
2 sheet trays
20 fresh persimmons, skins peeled
1) preheat oven to 170 F. cut each persimmon into 4-5 slices 1/3" thick.
2) place persimmons on silpat in a single layer.
3) dry persimmons in oven for 5-6 hours flipping persimmons a few times throughout the entire time until they are dried out.
