關於柿。

小時候我們家門前有棵柿樹。那些柿一定要熟透才能吃,若不是就會澀(astringent)。吃了成口難受。 但熟透的柿很難搞,會吃得很狼狽。所以對柿不算有大好感。但漂亮,特別是滿樹是柿時。

卻喜歡吃柿餅。喜歡那個味道。就算長大了,每次見到柿餅就回憶起童年,想起那個味道,就想吃。(但事實是,大個後,對這些生果乾有點怕。不知乾淨不乾淨。)

幾年前發現有隻叫 fuyu(富有)的柿品種,吃法跟小時候的柿是完全不一樣。這隻柿是脆爽的,不澀,清甜。從此愛上。可惜是,屬寒性,寒底的我不能多吃。(試過一個星期每日吃一個,然後病了!)

原來柿是分澀和甘的品種。Fuyu 屬甘柿,我一直都只敢買這隻。這段日子,farmer's market 好多柿出現。上個星期,我不知發甚麼神經,買了個澀柿回來,只是因為我覺得它很悅目。(!)當然,澀到傻左。

還是吃甘柿保險吧。
