Would you believe this was my first experiment with persimmons? Probably, because they are a less publicized fall fruit, and unlike a pumpkin which is available everywhere in the fall, persimmons are only available in some grocery stores, but can be found in large quantities at Asian and farmers markets. These delicious things are similar to apples, and are low in calories (although I don’t count calories, but a tip for those calorie conscious individuals), high in minerals and dietary fibre, beta carotene (perfect for healthy skin and anti aging), and loads of vitamin C (natural immune system booster). Sadly these lovely cuties are only available for a short time, so stock up while you can. I will be posting some persimmon recipes which hopefully will inspire you to get creative! 🙂 This recipe was inspired by my good friend Sheereen, (


1-4 persimmons
1/2 cup fill fat or light organic canned coconut milk
A handful of gogi berries (soaked in water for 3 minutes)
2 organic dark chocolate squares
A handful or raw almonds
A sprinkle of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Slice the top of the persimmon (you can use as much as you want), and make a shallow hole in the middle to allow room for the coconut milk.

Sprinkle cinnamon at the top of the persimmons and place in the oven on a non stick baking dish and bake for 10 minutes.

Top these with 1-2 tbsp of organic canned coconut milk (or light coconut milk) and other toppings of choice. I topped mine with more cinnamon, dark chocolate pieces, raw almonds, and soaked gogi berries ( i soaked gogi berries in water for about a minute to get a juicy fruity texture)
Nom nom nom!

    Dear Editor, Author, or persons authorized to give copyright permission.

    I am writing to you to get the permission to use your articles in my book The Foodpedia Fresh Fruits and Vegetables books series and other books will follow, on the history of other items in the food world. That will help the people of the world to eat and stay Healthier.

    I care and I hope you care about passing on to the new generation to stay Healthier.


    I am writing these books to “give back” my knowledge to the next generation of people, all over this world. I am writing these books to educate the people about the advantages of eating “Fresh Fruits” and “Fresh Vegetables” and how they can help themselves to have a healthier body, and the foods that are not good for a healthy body.

    I got your name from the website. On the Fruit you wrote about. I have your name on the information that I used, so that you will get all the credit on it. I do not want the credit for your works. You’re the one that did all the research on the food items. I have to rely on you for all this knowledge and your researchers.

    I praise you for this, that is why I want you to get all the credit you put in to these articles.
    I have to rely on your help to teach and training our next generation to live healthier. Then living on all this junk food and all the chemical’s they put into the foods we eat today.
    That is why we are the product of this generation of obesity etc. We have to help our new generation to eat and stay healthier so they can have a better life, then being sick and overweight all the time.
    The world is changing and we have to change with it NOW for our kid’s sake.

    This is the 21st Century NOW, and we have to do something about it NOW!
    I am on a movement (mission) of caring and share to help, not to make the same mistake this generation and our pass generations has made, to help them live healthier lives better then we did.

    But I need your help to get this mission (movement) going. I need your permission to let this happen, to use your research in food, to train and educate the people of the world to eat healthier.

    Remember the people will go to your website for more updates. Because you are always updating it, that I cannot do.
    Can you please e-mail the permission letter to authorize me to use your articles in my books (The History of Fresh Fruits. { Foodpedia The History of Fresh Fruit }) I have about 130 chapters of some of the fresh fruit used around the world, with over 5,000 color pictures, and about 5,000 pages).
    Can you please email { } with your permission to use your articles so we can help the this and the next generation to live and be healthier.

    Thank You Chef Paul J. Hintersteiner
