Prosciutto-Wrapped Persimmons

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!


  • Thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 2 persimmons with each cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Baking pan
  • parchment paper
  • Whisk
  • Bowl for vinaigrette

Recipe Steps:

Prepare the fruit:

  1. Cut the persimmons into wedges. Each persimmon should provide 8 wedges. Cut the persimmon into quarters and then slice each quarter in half lengthwise.

Prepare the vinaigrette:

  1. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Dunk the persimmon wedges in the bowl to coat the fruit. 

Wrap the persimmons in prosciutto

  1. Slice each thin slice of prosciutto in half lengthwise.
  2. Lay the prosciutto out on a cutting board and place the coated persimmon slice on the prosciutto.
  3. Wrap the prosciutto around the persimmon by rolling it along the cutting board. Place all the wrapped persimmons on a lined baking sheet.

Prepare for baking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy.
  3. Allow to cool down before serving.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer for a party. These tasty bites will go fast! Sprinkle fresh thyme on top or drizzle a balsamic glaze over the top for extra flavor.

If you need a vegan alternative for friends, bake the persimmons in the thyme and balsamic vinaigrette and omit the prosciutto. The persimmons will still taste amazing!

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!
