~winter persimmon tart... . .


.  . ... so
what do we do with these
beautiful 
p  e  r  s  i  m  m  o  n  s 
?
well... .
what
would you
w a n t

b e
?
hopefully... .
certainly
not
the
 u  s  u  a  l
 thing.
on a cool day
i'd want to be warmed up a bit in
b   u   t   t   e   r
... .   .
with just a sprinkle of brown sugar... .
maybe just a drizzle of balsamic vinegar... .
~ my life as a
p  e  r  s  i  m  m  o  n
 would now be ready for anything... .
~
i could now lay myself atop a lovely chilly quenelle
of the perfect ice cream~
a pure vanilla... .
a peppery dark chocolate... .
or spread on a nice warm
slice of humble toast.
but~
i think i would really like to rest
on a fluffy pillow of a
 spicy
g  i  n  g  e  r  e  d
 cream.
held
and
wrapped
in a crust made with
almonds
and
rosemary... .
then
garnished with
bright little squares of fresh
p e r s i m m o n
and feel the shimmering grains of
grapefruit sugar
and

top.
laid on

with the rose stem that held these
petals... .
then
i would be
presented in a box to

.....purely delightful ~*

this time i put in a ' fresh ' floral installation  as backdrop for the new merchandise ~ ~ *
i started out with  just a few sprigs of fresh ranunculus blooms & some flowering greens gently hung by ribbons and colored string with a backdrop of just cut blossoming branches  suspended horizontally behind ~ * ~ * such a nice, new energy of the fresh florals to be in the mix and part of the props this time.
.... it's like having a friend there creating the Vision with me ~*

~ jasmine tarts......

~ the sweet, intoxicating scent of Jasmine flowers* ... .  one of the first blooms of the spring !
i love this Jasmine and just want to roll in it and eat it and.... . Become it ~* !
i end up making anything i can think of out of it ~! first, of course... . is a Tart ~ * you know, i've come to love my limitations, as they keep things and decisions so comfortingly simple.
so...... i have just ~1~ lonely pear  in the fruit bowl on the table &  a few berries in the fridge.
then i noticed another first bloom... . my striped rose ~* . ... so that had to get tucked in for a bit of taste and color. the sweet pear sliced very thin to show off the beautiful seeds & core hiding inside. ~ sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle ..... .   . and there you go, a true Feast for the eyes, palate & soul ~ *
~ be sure to make some Jasmine sugar to use for everything ... .
. ......... and bake ~ * ~ so sweeeeet !
