Crispy, crunchy on the outside and sweet on the inside is what we’re serving up with our prosciutto-wrapped persimmons.
Just because summer fruit season is over doesn’t mean we’re out of options for prime fruit. Fall and winter months bring us delicious persimmons, which are incredibly sweet when fully ripe.
Make these tasty bites for your next gathering and amaze your family and friends with our savory and sweet combo. The sweet, rich flavor of persimmons plus the savory, salty prosciutto makes this recipe a delicious appetizer.
The persimmons wedges are dunked in a thyme, balsamic vinaigrette before being wrapped in prosciutto. No need to tuck the prosciutto or use a toothpick to hold everything together. The vinaigrette helps hold the prosciutto to the persimmon so they both crisp up together and don’t fall apart.
Once out of the oven, they’ll be very hot so make sure to allow them to cool before serving.
Our persimmons coated in a thyme balsamic glaze and wrapped in prosciutto will be a hit at your next party!

While persimmons wedges look similar to peach wedges, you just might surprise your family and friends. Ask what fruit they think is wrapped in the prosciutto before they take a bite and let us know their reaction on social!
