Persimmon apple butter

Karina Alcala


I love how apples and persimmons go together. I love apple butter so I figured why not add persimmon to it. This is a simple and easy recipe to make. I tried it with my home made bread and it was amazing. Have about 10 jars ready to give out as gifts for christmas.

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash, peel and dice your apples. Make sure you sterilize your canning jars and have them ready. In a large non reactive pot add diced apples, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest and juice along with lemon zest. Cook until apples are almost falling apart.
In a blender add apple compote and blend until they are pureed. At this time you bring it back to the pot and add persimmon pulp and lemon juice cook for another 3 minutes or so. Turn off heat and add mixture to the sterilized jars. Fill to the top leaving about some space for the top to form a seal. Bring jars to a pot simmering water and simmer until you hear the seal go pop.
Hope you enjoy this recipe perfect for the holidays.
