What can I make with Sharon fruit pulp?

What can I do with the pulp from four Sharon fruit (a.k.a. kaki or persimmon)? I just bought them but they were already so soft that when I went to cut the tops off, they turned into goop. They taste fine, though. Does anyone have a good, simple dessert recipe to use them in?

Small, sour orange fruit?

Can someone identify this fruit? It was brought back from Belize. It's about the size of a large olive. There's a large white pit inside, and the flesh is sour. The flesh is soft and smooth all over (the one pictured is a bit bruised). Googling has suggested some variety of kumquat? But the inside looks different. Thanks all!

Decadent veggies: what is your best recipe?

The boyfriend and I will be attending a holiday dinner with his brother, who professes to hate all plant-based food except grains, rice, and potatoes. He has thrown down the gauntlet and asked us all to produce a vegetable based dish that he will actually enjoy. Please save us from defeat by sharing your most delicious vegetable and fruit-based dishes. Main meals, side dishes, appetizers, and desserts all welcome, and the dish can include other food groups, as long as the fruit or vegetable is prominent.

Eating damaged fruit

I want to use more fruit and make it easier to process. I have composted a couple hundred pounds of fruit this summer. I hate the waste. We have a pear tree from which a certain squirrel eats half of each unripe fruit and throws the rest on the ground. Later in the season the fruit from the upper branches (30-40 feet) falls, impaling itself on twigs, or smashing on the ground, pulping a quarter of the fruit into the dirt. Some fruits have worms or slug damage after sitting on the ground. I pick what I can reach with a picker and if I am present when a ripe, un-bitten fruit falls and smashes, I eat that. But is there a better way? [more inside]

What is it?

What is this seed/fruit/nut, found at low elevation in northern California? The two pieces on the left are halves; they came out of the rind pieces at the top right. The smaller thing at lower right is a whole one, without rind. They are very firm, like an apple or more so, and the inside has no strong taste or smell.

What can I make from lousy fruit?

I buy fruit at the market for my toddler, but he doesn't always like it. Today's blackberries were too sour. Last week the apples were mealy. Sometimes the bananas get over-ripe before we can eat them all. What easy things can I do to transform "bad" fruit into other things that are still healthy for a kid?
