How’s this for a healthy, delicious and simple dessert recipe?
1. Freeze a persimmon. And, nope, it doesn’t even matter how ripe it is. (I KNOW. Life-changing.)
2. Wait as patiently as you can until it’s mostly frozen. (Probably around two hours, minimum.)
3. Cut off the stem and eat with a spoon! That’s. IT. (And, if it’s too frozen, no worries. You either have to wait a bit longer — the agony! — or you can pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften.)
The internet calls this “persimmon sorbet” and “persimmon flan,” but honestly, it’s just a frozen persimmon. But, actually, it’s simply and wonderfully delicious. Creamy. Sweet. And incredibly tasty. Freezing it does something magical, I swear.
And a HUGE thanks to my pal Spuds for welcoming this little dessert into my life.
So what are you waiting for? Grab some persimmons. (They’re in season now, too!) Mostly freeze them. And enjoy the heck out of them!
