If you’re not familiar with the delicious sweetness of persimmon fruit, here’s a recipe you can trust for a great introduction. The persimmon sauce tastes light and refreshing, it completes many desserts like panacotta, cake or ice cream, and can be frozen for future use. Serve chilled with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon.
Ingredient list for the persimmon sauce
- 2 Fuyu persimmons
- A vanilla pod, or seeds
- Whole cane sugar
- 1 apple
- 1 glass of water
- Ground cinnamon
1. Peel the persimmons and apple. Cut them into regular cubes for an even cooking.
2. In a chef pan, make the diced apple stew gently with the two peeled persimmons, vanilla, and sugar, covered with a glass of water. Simmer slowly until the apple begins to melt.
3. Chill the sauce and it’s ready! You can pulse the sauce for a smoother result but this is truly optional.
Tips: Spread the persimmon sauce on puff pastry circles and bake a few minutes in the oven.
