Fall is persimmon season.
They’re nutritious and delicious, with almost 72% of the DV of vitamin A (from all that beta carotene that makes it so orange). There’s also:
25% DV of fiber.
More than 21% DV of vitamin C and 9% of copper.
And there are lots of ways to enjoy them.
But here’s the easiest:
Buy Fuyu or Cinnamon persimmons, the sweetest varieties.
Slice them in half and simply freeze them.
Then, scoop out the flesh and eat it like sorbet.
A whole Japanese persimmon (e.g. Fuyu) has 118 calories.
Enjoy your persimmon “sorbet!”
