These looks so good! I've never had persimmon before. What do they taste like?

Humm...persimmons...well, they're different. The non-astringent persimmon (which seems to be the most popular kind) is shaped like a tomato and can be eaten firm or (so I've been told) when it's soft. When eaten firm it's crunchy like an apple, and sweet (it gets way sweeter when soft). I suppose the taste is similar to mango, but very unique.

What kind of persimmons did you use? The most common I've seen in recipes are usually Hachiya and sometimes Fuyu (the tomato-shaped ones).

Generally Hachiya are used in baking and Fuyu are eaten raw.

I really liked this recipe with alternations. I don't like it too sweet so changed it to 1/4 c. of honey and 1/4 c. of coconut oil. And added about 1/4 c. of apple sauce. I cup back on the salt slightly. It's a little savory. Thank you for the recipe!
