I have 7 very ripe hachiya persimmons in my freezer, frozen solid. They were READY TO EAT! when I got them (all delicious and snotty), but had to go out of town for the holidays and didn't know what else to do with them. Now I'm back and at a loss as to how to proceed. Can I thaw them? Will they shatter my blender as-is? I've made ice cream with persimmons before, but am still fairly new to this glorious fruit, so all suggestions are welcome.

What is a good cookbook for fresh cooking? I'm looking for a cookbook that takes in-season fruits and veggies and prepares them in a way where their natural flavors come through. I don't want anything heavy like fried foods or so drenched in sugar it will make my teeth hurt. Any ideas? I was looking at How to Pick a Peach by Russ Parsons but wanted to see if there is anything else better out there before I purchased it. Thanks :)

We have a persimmon in the fridge and I tried a piece of it tonight. It's very astringent and made my mouth dry. We Googled recipes for persimmon cookies and persimmon fudge, but are unsure of how well they'd turn out. Anyone know of something tasty we could make with this thing so it won't go to waste?
