Predict Winter Weather With Persimmons

Photo of persimmonsThere’s an old wives’ tale that you can predict the severity of winter weather by cutting open a persimmon seed.  If you see a knife shape inside it will be a cold, icy winter (the wind will cut through you like a knife).  A fork shape means a mild winter.  A spoon shape means you will need a shovel to dig out the snow.

Persimmons are widely available September through December.  Get a recipe for persimmon and apple salad here.
