Persimmons — Gluten-Free Menu Plan Jan. 13

Posted By Heather On January 13, 2014 @ 12:29 am In Menu Plan | 5 Comments


This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme is Persimmons. I was really surprised to see persimmons at the grocery store this month. I think of them as a fall fruit, but I guess you can often still find them in early winter. I never buy persimmons because I’m always so excited to fill up my basket with apples, pumpkins, and squash in the fall.

When I saw the persimmons last week, it got me thinking about how to eat them. I did a little research and found at About.com [3] that there are two varieties, the Fuyu and the Hachiya. The Fuyu, which I found at the store, is often peeled and eaten raw. The pulp of the Hachiya is often puréed and used in baked goods.

I found some yummy-looking gluten-free persimmon recipes to try, too!
