My dad sent me some more photos of Kurian’s harvest.
Hanging next to the laundry (yes, that’s a bath towel in the picture) are daikon harvested at Kurian. The dried daikon will be used to make takuan and other tsukemono.
Hanging from the parasol are persimmons. Dried persimmons are a very sweet chewy winter treat. By the way, that’s my dad’s golf club that my mom used to hang the strands from.
My dad’s email ended with an advertisement of the sweet persimmons: “Limited quantities available. Come home soon.”
