persimmon fruit leather

As I promised yesterday, here is one idea of what can be done with your leftover persimmon puree.

It's so easy your cat could do it. Plus, there is no ingredient other than the persimmon pulp... how great is that?!

Preheat the oven to 250 and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the persimmon pulp in a very thin, even, layer on the baking sheet.

Place the cookie sheet in the oven for about an hour (it may take longer if your pulp is a thicker layer). It is done when it is dry to the touch. It will shrink as it dries, so the result will come out of the oven in a wrinkly, funny-looking form.

As soon as it is cool, it will quite easily peel from the paper.

Cut it into pieces and store in an airtight container. It doesn't last long around here, but it should be good for a couple of weeks.

I got this idea from eHow.
