An apple a day keeps the doctor away? How about a persimmon a day?
According to a study comparing apples and persimmons, persimmons have a higher dose fiber and major phenolics (antioxidants), as well as potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and manganese…to name a few!
So why aren’t we all eating persimmons? Because 1) They're not found all over the world, and are traditionally on the East and West coast of the U.S. from November to February, and 2) Many people don’t know how simple and delicious they are to make and eat.
Well, it looks like you’re in luck, because here’s an easy way to make the most out of persimmons while you still can. The below recipe is one of the most decadent oatmeal dishes I've ever made. The caramelized persimmons on top (made without sugar or butter!) are easy enough for anyone to make, and will have you wishing persimmon season was just a little longer.
