Dried persimmons – also called shi bing or ‘persimmon cakes’ – are a popular sweet snack from southern China. In the autumn, the rooftops of entire towns turn orange as people lay out persimmons to wind dry into these flat, intensely sweet ‘cakes’.
The white bloom is the persimmon’s natural sugars that crystallise on the surface during the drying process. Because of their intense, honeyed sweetness, you can easily incorporate chopped dried persimmons into desserts, cakes and even biscuits.
Ingredients: dried persimmon.
