A fruit by any other name would taste as sweet. Excellent news for Sharon fruit (also known as persmimmon, kaki or diospyros). It looks like an orange tomato and tastes like a cross between a mango and a pumpkin. They can be eaten just like a plum and make a delicious snack just eaten whole straight from the fruit bowl. Sharon fruit loves... Cinnamon, honey, goat's cheese, balsamic vinegar, vanilla, yogurt, fresh coriander, chilli, tomatoes, halloumi, watercress, rice pudding, almonds, chocolate cake.
Honey Roasted Sharons: Give your sharon a little squeeze. If it's firm, roasting is a great option. Halve horizontally or slice. Drizzle over a little honey or agave syrup. Roast till golden. Gorgeous warm with a dollop of cream. Sharon Fruit Whippy: If your fruit is soft and squidgy, whizz them up into a delicious nectarine-like purée. It's heavenly swirled through vanilla yogurt, or dolloped into a steamy bowl or porridge with a dab of honey. Swoonsome Sharon Salad: Slice horizontally, toss the slices with leaves and a sweet and tangy honeyed balsamic dressing. Add a crumbling of goat's cheese, toasted almonds and fresh herbs. Sharon Salsa Cha-Cha: Guide your sharon into salsa. It's delicious with grilled fish. Dice and mix with lime juice, a splash of cider vinegar, chopped coriander and mint, a touch of chilli powder or chopped fresh red chilli, and a pinch of sugar.
