Persimmon season is a short one but I encourage you to scoop them up and make this Spiced Persimmon Butter. It’s similar to pumpkin or apple butter but made with persimmons and some extra spices for those yummy fall and winter flavors. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the paleo diets.
