Caramelized Persimmons


Source: Dinner at Home, 2009


  • 4 ripe Fuyu persimmons
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)
  • 9 ounces mascarpone cheese (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Chopped candied ginger, for garnish (optional)


  1. Heat broiler, with rack 6 inches from heat source. Slice persimmons in half crosswise. Place halves, cut side up, in a baking dish, and drizzle each half with honey. Broil until golden brown and caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately sprinkle 1 tablespoon lime juice over fruit.

  2. While fruit is broiling, whisk together mascarpone, vanilla, and remaining tablespoon lime juice.

  3. To serve, dollop each persimmon half with mascarpone mixture; sprinkle with candied ginger or sugar, if desired.
