New In! Hoshigaki - Dried Persimmon

Hoshigaki, or dried persimmon (also known as Kaki or Sharon fruit), is a traditional Japanese delicacy that dates back centuries. The process of making hoshigaki involves drying the fruits until they develop a unique texture and flavour. The result is a sweet and chewy delicacy, with flavours of honey, mango and papaya.

Hoshigaki are enjoyed as a sweet treat on their own, or they can be used as an addition to various dishes such as desserts and snacks. They can also be added to savoury dishes for a touch of sweetness.

Hoshigaki pairs beautifully with honey, fresh butter, brown sugar, bourbon, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts, and spices such as vanilla, cloves, star anise, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.

In addition to their delicious taste, hoshigaki are valued for their nutritional value. They are a good source of fibre and contain vitamins A and C, alongside various antioxidants. Additionally, as they contain natural sugars, they can provide a quick energy boost, making them a popular choice for a healthy snack.
