Dried persimmons

Gotgam 곶감

Dried persimmons are sweet and chewy like jelly candies. In Korea the fresh fruit is harvested in the fall, tied with string, and hung to air-dry. A whitish bloom on their surface indicates that they are dry and sweet. Besides cooking with them, you can eat them by themselves as a snack.

They are a little hard to find outside of Korea, try Asian markets and choose large, plump persimmons that are not discolored. They will keep in the freezer for a few months.
