We went out for a walk yesterday afternoon and noticed our neighbours kaki (persimmon) tree is over-laden with fruit. A great deal of it is hanging over their fence onto the river bank walk in the village. They will probably not be harvested as the house is the holiday home of our friends Mike and Pat who probably won't be back over in time to take advantage of such a good crop. They are happy for anyone to use them rather than seeing them going to waste.
Pauline found a recipe for a persimmon tart here if anyone is interested.
It was the 22nd of November but you'd never have known - no jacket required (was that not a Phil Collins' album),what a great month we've had!
