see previous post concerning why / how this fruit chip creation has come into being. i found this recipe from a fellow foodie over at vanillagarlic. let me just explain that i only had the pleasure of eat 2 or 3. after i went to bed josh unapologetically consumed every last one of these chips - that's right i've found a way to trick him into eating 2 whole persimmons. of-course this time around i wish that at least a handful would have remained - i really liked these especially after discovering that they only cost 50 cents each. so in other words this was a $1 snack food. you can't beat that - you just can't.
2 Fuyu persimmons
1 lime - juiced
*preheat oven to 200F, line pans w/ parchment
*slice the persimmons w/ a mandolin set to "2" or 1/16"
* sprinkle the lime juice over the slices
* in saute pan bring sugar and water to boil, then bring down to a simmer
*add persimmons and simmer for 2 minutes, take off heat
*with slotted spoon remove the slices and place on prepared pans
*cook in oven for 2 1/2 hours - flipping over each slice half way through. turn oven off and let the chip dry out for a few hours.
