For the Fermented Fuyu Persimmons

  • On a mandolin slice fuyu persimmons 1/8 inch thick and place in a bowl.  Then sprinkle liberally with salt all over the slices and place them in preserve jar (fido) packing them in tight.  
    Place a zip lock bag inside the jar so that the bottom of the bag touches the persimmons.  Then fill the bag up with water and close the lid to the jar (the bag acts as the weight to keep)
    Keep the jar outside in 77 degree temperature for at least 4 days up to 7.  Then it's ready to refrigerate.
