Hung Out to Dry…

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.”

    The daikon and persimmons were VERY impressive! I reread your March blog on Kurian…what a wonderful story about your parent’s passion for farming.

    When is our father retiring so he can farm full time?

    Your father’s email “advertisement” was so cute! They really miss you, Ai! When do you have plans to visit them again?

      I miss them too! Hope to go back again in March. My dad will officially retire early next year, but he’s already slowing down to only working 2-3 days a week.
