A note from the chef: Persimmons are sweet, versatile fruits full of vitamins, minerals, and fibre. They are believed to promote heart health, reduce inflammation, support healthy vision and keep our digestive system healthy among many other important benefits to our bodies. These fruits are orange in colour and shaped like tomatoes. Not many know about this delicious fruit and those who do can’t get enough of it…Enjoy this recipe!
