Are Persimmon Good?
Persimmon is not enjoyed as often as most other fruits, but when they fill the stores in the winter, you know I’ll buy them up and make a fruit salad out of them! I love enjoying them every year since their unique taste makes the perfect simple fruit to enjoy with tea. They taste almost honeyed, making them the perfect ingredient for fruit salads.
Are persimmon fruit healthy?
Persimmon fruit is filled with vitamins A and C, supporting the immune system and eye health. They are also a great source of fiber. The ginger in this recipe perfectly works with the persimmon giving a refreshing taste group. Personally, I like to make this salad about an hour before serving. That way, the flavors get to marinate.
This dessert is perfect for gluten-free, dairy-free, and weight-watching individuals. When researching about honey, I found out that honey promotes sleep! Also, it aids your cough and is considered an antibiotic powerhouse. Ginger is one of my favorites when it comes to getting sick. It has strong anti-inflammatory, antibacterial effects that gives it powerful medical properties.
Even more bonus points to ginger for reducing muscle pain and soreness! Studies done prove that people who consumed 2 grams of ginger everyday for 11 days, had reduced muscle pain from performing elbow exercises.
This honeyed fruit salad makes the perfect dessert with tea after a filling fall family dinner. I like to enjoy it with a Simple Homemade Cranberry Juice (warmed, of course)!
