The Benefits of Persimmons | Le Proprietà dei Cachi

The Benefits of Persimmons:

I have noticed that I haven’t been updating the section dedicate to my favourite ingredients for quite a long time, therefore today I’m going to talk to you about persimmons. From now on I would like to dedicate one post every month to the benefits of my favourite seasonal ingredients. In the past few weeks I created different recipes with persimmons like my Persimmon Tarte, which is super easy and fun to make.

Persimmons Tarte:

Last week, my lovely friend and photographer Christina, gave to me a big basket of organic persimmons from her boyfriend’s garden. Persimmon are my favourite Winter fruits as they are very sweet and juicy, therefore they are the perfect ingredient for cakes, compotes and smoothies. Persimmons are relatively high in calories, but very low in fat. These orange round fruits are also a really good source of Vitamins C, antioxidants and dietary fiber. I like to serve my Persimmons Cake for breakfast with a warm matcha tea or as a dessert combined with diary-free vanilla ice cream.
