Persimmon Serving Ideas

Many people prefer to eat persimmons fresh and on their own, but they are a wonderful addition to recipes. Try adding puréed persimmon to chutneys or jams, or chop them up to add to salsas. You can add the salsa to savoury recipes much like you would peach sauce or salsa.

Another tip is to use them for delicious appetizers like these pan-fried Brie cheese canapés with persimmon salsa, grilled Persimon® crostini with manchego and wine reduction or Persimon® wrapped in Serrano ham with Manchego and watercress.

Make your breakfast full of persimmon goodness by adding them to smoothies (like this one from Pineapple and Coconut), topping for your favourite yogurt and cinnamon-spiced granola, or filling light crepes with slices of creamy persimmon.

Persimmons complement many meat dishes. Try them with pork chops or chicken.

Slice persimmons horizontally to add to a salad to show off their unique and wonderful star pattern. Their tender sweetness is wonderful with leafy greens and kale too!

In desserts, use their wonderfully coloured flesh to contrast against dark chocolate. Or impress your guests with these gorgeous persimmon tartlettes.
