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!”
