I am always trying to find new and different things to serve for breakfast. When I saw a bag of persimmons at the store…I couldn’t resist, even though I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with them!
So home I went and started my research. I found there are two different kinds of persimmons; the ones that I had purchased are to be served crunchy, just like the bag said.
Next I went online to look for recipes….after tasting one raw, I wasn’t sure…and I found two recipes that looked promising–Poached Persimmons and Broiled Persimmons. So I experimented with the Poached Persimmons !
I (of course) didn’t follow the recipe exactly–I left them in larger pieces than recommended. The color is so vibrant and beautiful!
Here they are simmering away in a mix of white wine, orange juice and ginger! See that color!
And I left them a bit crunchy, then served them warm with a dollop of yogurt…there was nothing left on the plates!
