From Cyd, Persimmons and Grapefruit – a beautiful relationship!

Co-op member Cyd had some ripe Hachiya persimmons from a generous neighbor.  Instead of following the well-travelled road of adding orange, he veered and got creative by adding grapefruit.  I tasted this butter, and it works beautifully.  It is surprising, as so often grapefruit can over-power and make the resulting product too bitter, but in this case, the inherent sweetness of the ripe persimmons was balanced by that strong grapefruit note.  Fuyu persimmons (the crisp- ripe ones) are pictured above, as that was in my fruit basket today.  Cyd did use Hachiyas, which are only good when they are soft-ripe. Now we are hoping that generous neighbor joins the Co-op, as this is a winning flavor combo.  Thanks, Cyd!
