Persimmon crumble

    1 hour 5 min

    Persimmons make a deliciously different crumble! The flavour of persimmons reminds me of honey, so I added a little honey to the crumble. Use the firm persimmons for this recipe, not the ones that need weeks to ripen.

    I bought some persimmons on a whim and found this recipe. It turned out really great, might mix in some apples or berries next time.  -  23 Jun 2014
