Home made Hoshigaki

I have a hachiya persimmon, the kind with the pointed end. It's about to be ready, usually Thanksgiving or later. Does anyone know how to make hoshigaki, dried persimmons? Iunderstand they must be peeled, hung someplace dry, and massaged during their drying time. Any thoughts? Thanks.
