Baked Persimmons

Yield: 1 serving

Persimmons bake just like apples - and you can get creative with the fillings - but I think simple is best. I like raisins, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, mixed dried fruits


  • 1 Fuyu persimmon
  • 2 tablespoons filling of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Remove green leaf from top of persimmon. Use a melon baller to hollow out the persimmon - make a well about an inch across and an inch deep.
  3. Pack the hollowed out space with filling of choice. The filling should mound up about 1/3 inch above the persimmon.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the persimmon is soft, about 35 minutes. It will give when touched, but won't be as soft as a baked apple.
  5. Serve warm.
