As I mentioned in my Fuyu persimmon post last year, Fuyus should not be confused with Hachiya persimmons. Unlike the naturally astringent Hachiya, which needs to be so ripe it should look like a bag full of goop by the time you can eat it, Fuyus are sweet and firm when they’re ready. With Fuyus, you can just peel and eat. They’re amazing served fresh in salads or cooked in couscous and tarts. My favorite new fall dessert, however, is a Fuyu and Date Upside-Down Cake.
I’ve had this cake on my mind for some time. It has been years since I’ve eaten one– not since childhood. I remembered it as being sticky and sweet, delicious and remarkably easy to prepare– that is, I do not remember anyone ever slaving over the making of a Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
