When the weather cools down, it’s the perfect time to enjoy persimmon applesauce made in a slow cooker.
My whole family gets excited, when we see those first persimmons each season.
Persimmons are a fruit that I didn’t discover until I was an adult.
I’m happy to see that they are becoming more popular, so they are easier to find in the Fall.
This applesauce is made with Fuyu Persimmons, which are my favorites.
They are flat on the bottom and are ripe when they are still firm.
Another type of persimmon is the Hachiya, which is heart shaped. If you’ve ever bit into one of these astringent persimmons before it is soft and ripe, you wouldn’t forget it.
I generally stick with Fuyu for eating fresh and using in recipes.
