Before the first official day of fall arrived, we were already bombarded with every pumpkin-flavored item in the market. Pumpkin is the favorite that all the other vegetables and fruits hate this time of year. What about the other fall produce trying to make their comeback after the summer’s heat?
They need some love too.
I’ll be honest I’ve never heard of persimmons nor been in front of one until recently. But now, everything has changed.
For starters, it looks like the lovechild of tomatoes and peaches, but tastes like the divine name it was given.
The Asian fruit can be used in salads, desserts and drinks. According to , “compared to apples, persimmons can be considered an even healthier option thanks to their fiber, antioxidants, and minerals.”
I’m allergic to apples, so I’m already sold on this persimmons idea.
I decided to research the holy grail of recipes to find some common persimmons recipes and I was not disappointed.
Delicious Persimmons Cake
You can forget the pumpkin pie. This soft, moist cake will be the staple dessert for fall.
Beautiful Persimmons Tarte
Why have a boring ole’ apple tarte? It’s better to combine two different fruits together and produce the most Instagram-worthy picture ever.
Spreadable Persimmons Jelly
It’s time to put away the syrup or the blueberry jam and try your hand at a spread to make breakfast sweeter.
Creative Persimmons and Pomegranate Crepes
Be the talk of Thanksgiving dinner and bring a new dessert to the table. I mean, how many times are you going to have a pie?
Quench-filled Persimmons Smoothie
Put down the green juice and try a drink worthy enough to clear your thirst.
Despite my small fan club, I’m not the only one praising the underrated fruit. It’s name should be known, posted on billboards and hashtag for the world to see.
If you’ve never had persimmons, you’re missing one of nature’s greatest treates. It’s like eating pumpkin spice dulce de leche from a tree.
