I always had a fun with persimmons. They come out for a bit in the fall a bit expensive but look really cool. They are kind of similar to a tomato with bright orange color and sweetness of a sweet potato.
1/4 Cup maple syrup to
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of salt
Start by washing the persimmons and cutting off the top. Slice each into six even pieces and throw them into a bowl. Now add maple syrup olive oil and salt to the bowl. Toss together well by hand. Spread out on a foiled baking dish. Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes. The outsides will start to brown and get crispy. Serve hot!
Note: persimmons have a puckering quality. Which means once prepared they can create a very dry mouth feeling that takes time to get used to. One way to avoid this is by soaking the slices in salt water for 5 minutes and then rinse before you add the maple syrup or any of the ingredients.
