Have you ever watched Food Networks "Chopped" and "Iron Chef America"? The surprise ingredients on both shows are head scratchers too. On Chopped they gave the Chefs trout and white chocolate with endives as the secret ingredients. I am constantly amazed how these chefs put together flavor, color, and texture combinations together and make it work.

  "Who the #$$% would come up with *persimmons*  as a surprise 
ingredient in such a contest! You probably can't even find a single 
period recipe, much less find some for food use! What a dumb idea!"

Well, it would make for quite a surprise! I used them in the first feast 
I did, which included a number of selections from A Soup for the Qan. 
Really, it only gives two bits of advice concerning this fruit:

Persimmons should not be eaten with crab.

Persimmons are sweetish in flavor, cooling, and lack poison. They cause 
ear and nose ch'i to pass, and supplement for hsu-lao, bloody stool 
insufficiency. They make the stomach ample.
