This looks delightful and I would like to make it but I am allergic to nuts. Can I simply omit the almonds and use just the dates for the crust?
Thank you!

Maybe you could use cooked, brown and/or wild rice rather than the almonds?

Oatmeal would probably work.

You can eliminate or add anything you like to a recipe, it's up to you.
Can you eat sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds?

Thank you Dr. Kim for taking the time to share with us! I've learned a lot from you and always look forward to your newsletter. I've never had a persimmon before and can't wait to make this recipe.

Re: Persimmon Pie

This looks delicious! Have enjoyed persimmons for many yrs, however, for those not familiar w/them, the more squishy they are, like a rotten tomato, the better they are. This means they are ripe and perfect for eating. Otherwise, if you eat a non-ripe, hard persimmon, you may not ever want to try one again as the taste is like night and day when they're ripe and delicious. Enjoy!
