How is Ichida Persimmon special?
Ichida persimmon is a brand of As a high-class Japanese persimmon that has been produced in the Nagano prefecture since around 1800.
In the Edo period (1603-1867), it was presented as "Shogun's tooth hardening confectionery," and in 1943, it was presented to the Imperial Household, which attests to the history and dignity of the Ichida persimmon.
Ichida persimmons ripen from late October to early November.
They are so astringent with tannin that they are unpalatable when raw. The persimmons are dried slowly by the power of nature, and the seeds and heft are carefully removed from the sweetened persimmons.
After shaping them for easy stacking, they are cut. Even as dried persimmons, Ichida persimmons are captivating with their melt-in-your-mouth texture and sweetness.
As it's made from the premium persimmon
As it's made from the natural material, there is a slight variation in size.
It's small but satisfying, made from Ichida persimmons, a rare and highly prized variety in Japan!
Secret of butter
Butter is made from raw milk, which is first separated into cream and skimmed milk.
Most butter sold in Japan is the "non-fermented" type.
Since the cream for "non-fermented butter" is not lacto-fermented, it has a mild flavor with no peculiar taste.
To convey the original taste of Ichida persimmon, Matsuzawa's Ichida persimmon millefeuille is made with "non-fermented butter".
The main character of this millefeuille should be the persimmon, and the butter plays a supporting role.
With this in mind, they specify "non-fermented butter, salted type" and use it on purpose.
It's well-received in Japan
"The sweetness of the persimmon combined with the saltiness and flavor of the butter--what a treat!
"It is best when cut into thin slices and served with sake”.
"My husband, who had eaten it at a bar, insisted on ordering it, so we bought it!
Even my husband, who doesn't like persimmons much, wants to try them again!”.
