Around where I live there’s been a bumper crop of Fuyu Persimmons (the small hard kind) and we have been given a passel of this brightly colored fruit. We’ve passed some on and yesterday I made two Pies with. It was Easy as Pie! I make it just like an apple pie and
Here’s the Fuyu Persimmon Pie Filling recipe I used. I chose this recipe because it uses Meyer lemons which we also have a passel of.
I must confess I use frozen pie crusts. Who among us can make good pie crust? Please advise.
3 pounds persimmon, peeled, cored, and sliced into thin wedges
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch of salt
Juice from 1/2 Meyer lemon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1. Mix persimmon slices with pumpkin pie spice, salt, and Meyer lemon juice.
2. Add fruit to pie shell.
3. In a bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup melted butter. and 2 eggs until smooth.
4. Pour mixture over persimmon in pie shell. Cover with top crust.
5. Brush top crust with one beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar. Cut a few slits in the pie to allow steam to escape while baking.
6. Bake the pie at 375° for 45 minutes, until the crust is golden (if the edges brown too quickly, cover with aluminum foil).
7. Let cool 1 hour, then serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Let me know about your Pie Making experiences.

I’m a sucker for a pretty car, because my dad was a car guy who taught me to identify all the 1960′s cars by sight.
What do you pull over to snap pictures of?
Let yourself be silently drawn
by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.
I used to sit in the cafe of existentialism,
lost in a blue cloud of cigarette smoke,
contemplating the suicide a tiny Frenchman
might commit by leaping from the rim of my brandy glass.

While cozy under a warm quilt, reading a crochet themed “who done it” on the phone, rainbows from the crystal in the kitchen window danced across the quilt. What else can you do but click over to my camera function and take a picture? Then have fun editing it.
