To press the pulp from your persimmons: store ripe persimmons in the refrigerator. Remove and let stand at room temperature for about 1 hour before trying to remove pulp. Peel persimmons or scrape pulp from peel with a spoon. Press persionnons through a fine mesh strainer until you have pulp. From Better Homes & Gardens October, 2002
Adapted from Deborah Madison's book Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. This is the best method for roasting garlic. It creates the smoothest roasted garlic with the best flavor. It enriches and smooths the flavor and it great in just about everything (well, except desserts). Yield depends on the size of your head of garlic. This produces surprisingly little (perhaps 2 tbs the first time I did it), so if you would like a larger quantity you may want to double or triple the recipe.
This is an adopted recipe. I haven't made it yet, but I will soon and will then update it with any necessary changes. >>A healthy, not-too-sweet muffin, so add more honey or some sugar if you prefer your muffins sweeter. You can also substitute 1 cup coarsely grated zucchini for the carrots. (From a cookbook called "Healthy Hometown Favorites".)
