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.

How To Make persimmon apple butter

    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.
