  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  • Peel and dice the Fuyu persimmons.

1)This is good in the fridge for a week. 
2) You can freeze this in freezer bags or jars.
3) If you feel it needs to be thickened you can dissolve 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch into 2 Tablespoons of water, then pour the mixture into the jam. If you feel it needs to be thinned out, you can add more lemon juice or just a bit of water and whisk.
