Autumn Honey Baked Persimmons Recipe
Serves: 6
Fresh from the garden: Persimmons

Did you know there are 2 types of persimmons? The first is round and fat and looks a little like a tomato. It’s eaten when crunchy and sweet. The second is larger and longer and should be eaten fully ripe, when the flesh is soft. You can use either in the recipe, so choose your favourite!
