Persimmon Butter

Persimmon Butter for cocktails, toasts, and baking | recipe on Craftandcocktails.coA creamy, smooth spread that uses ripe, winter persimmons for topping toast and mixing into cocktails. It has flavors of vanilla through out along with warm baking space. Persimmon butter, like apple butter, doesn’t actually contain butter, but is incredibly creamy. Pureed cooked persimmons tend to thicken on their own thanks to tannins and carbohydrates, so they are perfect for cooking up thick jams and butters.
