simple dried persimmon recipe


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.
