(The Takeout)   Tired of pumpkin spice headlines in your Fark? Well, try some other autumnal flavors, such as vanilla, truffles, coffee, rose, wasabi and wait... wasabi? That'd be one hell of a latte flavor   (thetakeout.com) divider line

Actual wasabi or the green dyed horseradish we serve in the US?

Honestly, mixing together all the flavors in the headline would indeed make an intriguing latte.

Spiciness related threadjack:

We get lots of peanut butter (more than we can use) in the Senior Food Handouts. So Mrs. Harlee decreed that "There Shall Be Peanut Butter Cookies." And yes they are delicious.

But they are always better with crunchy peanut butter, and all we get is creamy. So I came up with the idea (not yet tried) of chopping up a can free peanuts we have and mixing them into the creamy peanut butter.

And then I looked at another can of free peanuts... Planters Chili Lime Peanuts. I wonder how these, chopped up into tiny bits, would taste in peanut butter cookies? Would the added fat from the butter and the peanut butter offset the fire? How would warm Chili Lime Peanut Butter Cookies go with a flagon of ice cold milk? Thoughts? Anyone? Bueller?

Baking the peanuts is going to change the flavor of the chili lime powder they use.  So, this is one of those situations where a test bach is really the best way to find out.

My guess is that you'll wind up with something that works more as a side to a meal and not a snack.

Speaking of wasabi, does Blue Diamond still sell their wasabi almonds in a resealable bag?  I only see the iny cans anymore.

Yeah, I dunno about a snack. But mix those, soy, lime juice and garlic together and go for a quick satay sauce. Then dip roasted/grilled chicken in that stuff. Or use it as a salad dressing.

Wasabi Latte is super fun to say though.

Exactly what a fan of NY style would say!

For me the flavors of Autumn are Persimmon, Squash, fresh Lamb, Quince, and English-style Cider.

As a new-to-it bread baker who now makes his own pizza dough, I take exception. If I had a horse, I'd horsewhip you on the steps of your club. If you had a club.

Sweet, rich, subtly spicy, a honey aftertaste.

Some varieties (the North American Diospyros virginiana, Hachiyas, etc.) are astringent and need to be retted before you eat them. Others like Fuyu can be eaten while firm

The persimmon has a window of edibility that's measured in minutes. Mostly it's too sour and foul to eat.

My grandpa had a limited range of kid-entertainment. He either sang Old Dan Tucker or told an inexplicable story about animals stealing persimmons. Imagine my disappointment the first time I tasted one.

I'll have to try one. I imagined them as unpleasantly tart.

For ones like the Fuyu it's pretty long. For the astringent types wait until they soften, then either eat them in a couple days or blitz them. We had pulp in the freezer most through midsummer. I made tagine, ice cream, and flan with it.

S. J. Perelman is credited with it. That goes back... a long way.
My favorite line of his was a four word demolition of a production of Hamlet. "Funny without being vulgar."
