Persimmons Grand Marnier Recipe-10303

Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


An elegant, three-minute dessert. This works equally well with bananas.

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Dash of ground cinnamon
  • 2 Fuyu persimmons, peeled and sliced into irregular shapes
  • About 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, plus more for serving (optional)


Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the cinnamon and persimmon pieces, and sauté for a few minutes. Add the liqueur, being careful of the dramatic high flame that will result. Transfer to a warm plate and serve. Add an extra splash of Grand Marnier if you like.
