We have been experimenting with persimmon recipes after bringing home a bagful of Fuyus from the Joshua Tree farmers' market last weekend, and we're ready to declare these baked persimmons our favorite of the bunch.
The honey-infused baking method is based on something we found at Persimmons Australia online. But instead of the the vanilla bean in their recipe (which also sounds delicious!), we incorporated a mixture of warm cinnamon, allspice, and ginger, which complement the Fuyu persimmons' spicy sweetness.
Baking and broiling the persimmons until they're soft and caramelized does take awhile, but otherwise the preparation is incredibly easy and very much worth the wait. We served the persimmons alongside homemade apple chips for a healthy, autumnal dessert. Serving them with ice cream, whipped cream, or some cake to soak up the syrup would be lovely, too.
