Roasted Persimmons

I love using seasonal food that I find in the market. Once summer rolls around the colors of the new stuff is always eye catching. Persimmons are a great side to any dish. They look like an orange tomato but when cooked, tastes like a sweet potato. This recipe is super simple a great one for kids.

I must admit I took this recipe from my boyfriend. He is an amazing cook but does not cook very often. Any dish he makes is always something to remember.

Ingredients:

3 Persimmons (cut into 1/8th chunks)

1 Tbsp. Olive oil

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Place on a foiled pan and roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until chunks begin to become golden brown.
