Dried persimmons

Gotgam 곶감

These dried persimmons are a little hard to find outside of Korea. You can also try Chinese and Japanese markets, they might have them there. They are a little sweet, in a totally natural way, and are really delicious!

      I usually get dried persimmons at a Korean store, but sometimes find at a Chinese store in China town.
