Many will agree the best way to eat persimmons is fresh off the tree or over the sink, where you can eat the persimmon flesh that is close to the peel. But what about canned persimmons?
Persimmons are one fruit that one might ask to can or not to can. If you think can, the pineapple and lemon compliment the persimmon flavor in this jam like none other. The jam may be frozen and taken out one hour before use..

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 large can pineapple slices
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
