How to Make Persimmon Pie
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Dec 28, 2015
As discussed in an previous post on the health-enhancing nutrients found in persimmons, when these delectable fruits are in season, you are wise to include them in your diet.
Here's a look at how simple it is to make a mouthwatering persimmon pie with just 4 to 5 ingredients:
1 cup of almonds, soaked for 6 to 12 hours, then drained
1 cup of dates, soaked for 1 to 2 hours, then drained
Use a food processor to bring together almonds and dates. Add a little water if needed to bring almonds and dates together into a well homogenized mixture. You should end up with a coarse, slightly moist, dough-like consistency.
Press almond and date "dough" evenly into a pie plate. A 9-inch plate or shallow, medium-size bowl works well with the quantities listed above. If you don't have a pie plate, use smaller bowls - you can make two mini pies.
Allow the crust to harden slightly in the freezer for about an hour.
3-4 medium persimmons
2-3 medium dates
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg (optional)
Use a food processor to bring together persimmons, dates, cinnamon, and nutmeg until they form a pudding-like consistency.
Pour filling into prepared crust.
This delicious persimmon pie can be served right away or chilled for an hour or two before being served.
