When I was having my first grocery experience in Seoul I was trying to find a good mix of Korean food I could decipher and comfort foods from home to help me settle in.

I bought cheese and crackers and then on my way home I stopped to buy some tomatoes to add this this wonderful little plate I was thinking of making for dinner.

Only I got home to make dinner and cut open the tomato only to discover it was indeed not a tomato at all. So I spent a day calling it not a tomato because I had no idea what it was. Then today I went into work and asked a co worker what it was I had bought and she laughed at my made up name.

Come to find out it is still not a tomato but I do know it is a persimmon.
