First up I just have to say: Part of me thinks we should have made this recipe with pear and persimmon, because it would be so much easier to say. Instead all morning as we’ve been talking about this recipe, I’ve been stumbling out the name as ‘papple’.

Either that, or ‘apple’ comes out as ‘apply’ when I write it – because my fingers sure do love to trick me as I type.

Now, with that off my chest…

What are Persimmons?

Ah persimmons. They’re such strange little fruits, don’t you think?

Originating in Japan, persimmons come in two main varieties – sweet and bitter – you’ll usually find the sweet kind available for sale. Both look like a cross between a pumpkin and a tomato, but thankfully they’re nothing like either.

The best part is that these under-appreciated little powerhouse fruits are low in calories and fats, yet high in fibre, nutrients and antioxidants.

Firm to the touch yet soft and sweet inside, you can easily munch into them fresh, no peeling or chopping required.

But they’re even more amazing paired with other sweet or savoury ingredients, such as in salads and desserts.

We tried sweet persimmons for the first time this season in Australia and were instantly hooked. So we did some investigating (ie eating lots and lots of persimmons – ah the things we do for foodie love) and we’re here to share with you guys our favourite persimmon recipe so far:

Easy Persimmon Apple Oat Crumble Pie

Maybe it’s that naturally sweet and tangy combo of soft baked persimmon and apple?

Maybe it’s that crunchy, crumbly top made with flour, oats and golden butter?

Maybe it’s the mix of both in one glorious spoonful?

Either way, our Persimmon Apple Oat Crumble Pie was a winner at Wanderdad’s 60th birthday dinner, earning the seal of approval from all three generations at the table.

Not bad for a sweet, delicious dessert that took 5 minutes to prepare.

(Plus 30 minutes of attempted patience, trying to stop ourselves peeking in the oven as that sweet crumbly crust transformed into golden brown deliciousness. We’re sorry in advance for any amazing smells emanating from your oven as a result of this recipe.)

And the best part? It actually worked out quicker, fresher and tastier to whip up this fresh homemade crumble pie than any frozen dessert we could have bought from the store.

Oh and one last thing. We forgot to mention the secret ingredient that binds these two delicious forces together: sumac.  It may be our newly beloved spice, but paired with cinnamon and the fruits it ups the ante on your classic crumble. Try it out for yourself!

  1. Got to try this pie. My husband loves persimmon but most give me a strange mouth feel. I bet they are amazing in pie though

      Oh interesting about the persimmons. Do you eat them raw/whole or peel them first? We’ve only just come across these and totally love them, but they are definitely amazing cooked as well. Their flavour softens a bit and you’re left with a soft, sweet, almost vanilla taste which goes amazingly with the apple. Hope you guys enjoy!

  2. Wow, this sounds insanely delicious right now! Can’t wait to make it!

      Accidental brilliance haha 😛 But seriously, how good are persimmons?? I can’t believe we’d never tried them before. They’re our new favourite fruit!

      There’s just something about that sweet soft crunch isn’t there? A big bowl + a dollop of whipped cream = a night made!

      Oh persimmon pudding sounds fantastic! We still have a whole bowl left of them – so you’ll have to pass along the recipe, we’d love to give it a go! Thanks Marisa 🙂
