Hongshi Season

Yes, that is an Oshawott spoon.
홍시가 제철이다! Hongshi are fully-ripened astringent persimmons that taste like heaven. I got six of them for 3,000₩ (a little less than three bucks) from a vendor on the street, and I think that's a good deal. I've been eating them for breakfast every day this past week, and now that I'm almost out, it's time to get more. Perhaps I can bake them into something. I could also freeze them for a few months: instant persimmon water ice for Korea's super-hot summers!
