3 Healthy Recipes using Persimmon

Persimmons are a winter fruit staple. There are two types commercially available: hachiya and fuyu. Hachiyas look like a tomato and are ripe when they are soft. They should taste sweet with a jelly-like texture. These are often used in baking recipes and make for amazing jam. Fuyus, on the other hand, can be consumed hard and taste crisp like an apple.
