I had been curious seeing these anpo-gaki in the markets.
They are semi-dried persimmons. I hadn't bought them before because they tend to be kinda pricey. The kaki pictured above is 125 grams...pretty huge if you ask me.
Cutting into it is like cutting a dried apricot but there is lots of "gel". I found a great detailed article about kaki, in general, here, if you are interested.
Satoshi and I shared the anpo-gaki, I had mine with oatmeal and some pumpkin seeds.
The kaki was so sweet! like eating a jam.
I can't believe we've been missing out on this delicacy...now we know.
