"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Sometimes it takes a very long time for the persimmon to soften. The fastest way is to put the whole persimmon in the freezer until they freeze solid. When ready to use, remove from the freezer, run under hot water to skin. The pulp will be soft and perfect for use. This was advice given to me by a friend that grows persimmons.
