Persimmon Date Medley Creation

There are a couple persimmon trees around my campus. In early fall there's a downpour of these squishy orange fruits that floods the ground and tempts any sweet-toothed passerby. By halloween there's enough of this nature candy lying around to satisfy any (health-conscious) tricker-treater. I've discovered several things to do with the fruit. Here's one creation that makes for a richly-flavored dessert. If you don't have persimmons, you might try using mango instead.

Persimmon Date Medley Creation:

1 cup of persimmons, washed and skinned
1/2 cup dates, pitted
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1 Tablespoon Maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix everything together, and that's it!
