The weekend of Nov. 11th and 12th will be busy for us, because we'll be demonstrating hoshigaki (Japanese traditional hand-dried persimmon) at two different locations. On Saturday, Nov. 11th from 10-2 we'll be talking about persimmons and how to make hoshigaki at Bushnell Garden supply in Granite Bay. This is a drop-in event with no need to register ahead.
On Sunday, Nov. 12th from 10-3 we'll be at Twin Peaks Orchard in New Castle for their Fall Harvest Open House. Twin Peaks is an orchard that started about the same time as ours in 1911 and our families have known each other since then. Twin Peaks grows grows a lot of the same fruits we do, including persimmons. Their specialty is amagaki persimmons, which are hyakume persimmon treated so that they're sweet when still firm. We'll be there to demonstrate hoshigaki. For more information, see the Twin Peaks website.
