Recipe

Pumpkin pie gets a lift when served with this gelato made from fresh persimmons, an exotic fall fruit.

Yield : Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 3 fresh persimmons, peeled (see Notes)
  • 1 cup (250 mL)  Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup (250 mL) whipping (35%) cream
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) orange zest 

Directions

1. In a food processor or blender, purée persimmons with syrup until smooth. Transfer to a clean bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, whip cream. Fold into persimmon mixture. Stir in orange zest. Cover and refrigerate until completely cold or overnight.

3. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Notes

Persimmon Basics:

The national fruit of Japan also has a North American history, in that Native Americans taught European settlers how to use the fruit in breads and puddings. Persimmons are ready to eat when they are ultra-soft. Just break the skin and spoon out the delicious flesh.
