Kaki (Persimmon) is called “Hurma” in Turkish. We grow kakis in our yard. Most people do not know this orange colored fruit even in some regions of Turkey. Luckily, we have it in our yard. I know that kakis are originally from Far East. But it can be grown in certain parts of our country. You should wait until they are ripen enough, they should be so soft that you can not hold it hard. If it is not soft enough, you will have a stringent taste in your mouth. There are also some species which are edible hard, but stil they are more yummy when soft.
This magical fruit can save you from a friend/child begging for dessert at a night time. So here is the simplest recipe of night dessert/ snack.
• 3 kakis
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• Almond, nuts, pistachio
Put the kakis in a food processor and mash them. Pour it in a bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon, mix it. Garnish it with almond pieces. That’s it! This is not only yummy but also a healthy way of soothing your appetite.
