Grilled Persimmons with Honey, Cinnamon and Pepperberry

In the depths of winter do you long for fresh peaches or any of the luscious summer fruits? We do - constantly. So it was wonderful when a friend dropped in some Persimmons from her tree  These gorgeous orange, round balls of fruity deliciousness are one of the few winter fruits that are around.🍊
They are great sliced and eaten fresh and are perfect with cheeses. But ripe Persimmons,  cut in half and grilled with a little honey, ground cinnamon and Pepperberry and topped with a dollop of clotted cream or mascarpone is a whole other level! Worth a try folks 😋 And we wouldn't tell you to try something we hadn't done ourselves - all this food- it's only about the research, really!!
For four
4  ripe Persimmons, cut in half and removing any seeds
8 teaspoons honey
4 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons Pepperberry
Prehear your oven and grill to 185C
Mix all dry ingredients together evenly.
Place the 8 persimmon halves on a tray lined with baking paper, cut side up
Drizzle the honey over each of the fruit.
Then simply sprinjkle the dry sugar and herb/spice mix over each fruit and then 
place the tray on the upper shelf in the oven.
Cook for 8 -10 minutes. The persimmons should be tender and the honey sugars and spices should be caramalised.
Serve immediately with fresh marscapone or pure cream or with a good quality vanila ice-cream. So delicious!
