Killer App: Bacon-Wrapped Persimmons

Nov 8 2010 - 4:15pm
If you enjoy bacon-wrapped dates [1], you're bound to love persimmons wrapped in bacon! This killer appetizer is fast to make and will definitely be a crowd-pleaser at upcoming holiday gatherings. These bites only require three ingredients: persimmons, bacon, and a touch of vinegar. Persimmons have a delicate flavor that can sometimes be overpowered by too much bacon, so I recommend only using a small slice of bacon. Get to blanketing your persimmons in bacon by reading more.

Bacon-Wrapped Persimmons

Ingredients

1 pound sliced bacon, halved lengthwise and cut into thirds
8 persimmons, cored and sliced into 6 wedges each
1/4 cup champagne vinegar, for brushing
Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wrap a piece of bacon around each persimmon wedge; secure with a toothpick, and arrange on parchment-paper-lined rimmed baking sheets.
  2. Roast for 20 minutes. Flip the wedges, rotate the pans and increase the heat to 425 degrees; roast until the bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes. Brush with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Serves 8-10 people.
