This Kiwi Persimmon Parfait is the perfect snack for a hot summer day or cool fall evening. Really anytime is a good time for this decadent treat!
On occasion we get territorial about food in our family. Does this ever happen to you? I for one am such a fresh fig lover that if anyone claims the last of my figs before the week is done I can get down right snappy. I try to live by this rule in the kitchen_ whoever gets to it first gets to eat it. It sounds fine on paper, but if you’re dreaming of a certain food and it’s not there when you want it I’m betting you’re going to get pretty ticked off.
For the past few months, my hubby has been watching Gemma on Sunday mornings so I can go to the farmers market with one or two of the other kids. He texts me a laundry list of his favorite foods which recently has included persimmons. His specific love is for Hachiya’s which has a thin outer skin, are oval in shape and an almost jello-y sweet and creamy center. Once I came home with 4 instead of 6 and didn’t hear the end of it all week.
When I asked the kids if they wanted Strawberry Parfaits for an afternoon snack, but later remembered strawberries are totally out of season I decided to grab some just ripe kiwis and persimmons instead. Kenya’s eyes lit up when I gave him the glass filled with Kiwi Persimmon Parfait. He loved it so much he ate a second one the next morning which didn’t go over well with Chloe or husband who realized I had made them with his beloved persimmons.
I better start protecting my few favorite foods because I’m betting pay back isn’t going to be fun. It’s a good thing these are simple enough all I need to do is grab some more sweet fruit and make double or even triple next time!
