POACHED PERSIMMONS

Makes 6 servings
Each serving equals one 5 A Day serving


Ingredients
6 firm-ripe Fuyu persimmons, (about 1½ pounds)
½ cup dry white wine
¾ cup orange juice
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp fresh gingerroot, peeled and minced
¼ tsp cinnamon


Stem and peel the persimmons, discard any seeds, and cut each persimmon into 8 wedges.

In a saucepan combine the persimmons, wine, orange juice, sugar, gingerroot, and cinnamon, bring the liquid to a boil, stirring occasionally, and simmer the mixture, covered, for 15 minutes, or until the persimmons are tender.

Transfer the persimmons with a slotted spoon to a bowl, boil the syrup until it is reduced to about ½ cup, and pour it over the persimmons.

The persimmons may be served warm or chilled over ice cream, rice pudding, or bread pudding.
