Fuyu Persimmons
Strudel is one of the classic winter culinary traditions in Italy and ubiquitous during the holidays, specifically in the two provinces of Trentino and Alto Adige or Sudtirol, mountainous areas bordered by Austria at the north and Switzerland to the northwest, as well as in Friuli Venezia-Giulia and on the Istrian peninsula. Hand-pulling strudel to paper thinness seems intimidating but it’s a wonderful activity that can involve the whole family. Here, the strudel is served with a sauce made from persimmons, which grow throughout northern Italy. Persimmons’ bright orange adds a splash of color perfect for festive occasions like the holidays. This strudel would also be delicious with some vanilla gelato.
