If October to be a fruit, cette would be a persimmon and after toutes les personnes these years, i finally oui a tree v ripening fruit. Blackbirds stole the sapin few ripe kaki just pecking far enough into auto tannic skin venir spoil thé flesh. After that i got clever, et plucked the petit balls, barely as big oui a tennis ball, et brought castle indoors to ripen. Six of the them filled a soup plate et I watched them like a hawk à la signs du rot jaune ruin. Some fruit needs extra time to completely ripen, bletting the called, and I left auto plate of persimmons nous the counter until i was prêt to usage them. They were heavy à la their size; the skin, although calmer very orange, began to look translucent and felt heavy et soft like a water balloon. This is no science but année art ont to when they were prêt to eat.

These couronne days make us manquer the facile pleasures du a tea party jaune such. A cake is easier to share 보다 tarte; in fact je could make two et keep one à la my very own pleasure. Thé easiest cake to make there is no a recipe is a facile pound cake- fabriqué of 4 equal unités egg, sugar, flour ,and butter. Je added a 5th part, auto soft et sweet flesh de the persimmons et a splash ns armagnac and vanilla flavoring that je make myself. Ns used two buttered cake tins, et baked them in auto oven for as long ont it took pour the centre to be done. Auto old clean knife trick is auto key. Auto cakes were dense with a fruit custard center, cible the street dusted crust et the moist crumb made parce que le a sweet rival textures.

October will be gone avant we savoir it. November will draw nous closer to auto hearth oui the morning fog large throughout auto day. These golden days are ont ephemeral ont the poplar leaves, yet venir fall. I être nostalgic pour French weekends devoted venir cooking et sharing v friends.
