Persimmon Marmalade with Lemon and Vanilla


Post is also available in: Italian

This recipe, I admit, was born from a disaster. Unfortunately the freshly bought persimmons were all crushed, and in order not to waste them we tried to make jam. The result was this Persimmon Marmalade with Lemon and Vanilla, we added some apple to give it some density, but it is not as firm as that of other fruits, especially since the persimmons were soft. The result was a sweet and aromatic jam that was not very thick.

Prepare the Persimmon Marmalade

The preparation of this jam is not long at all, it will take an hour and you will have a delicious jam. I advise you to remove the peel of the persimmons because it could make it tannic and lumpy. I have prepared this jam on other occasions and when I left the peel the result was not optimal so clean them before putting the Persimmon Marmalade to cook.
