Persimmon Muffins

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

I always LOVE getting “different” fruits and veggies from the Bountiful Basket. Last week, besides the bulk green beans, we also received persimmons. I haven’t had persimmons since I was a kid. They are such a beautiful color. I pulled up some information online and it stated that anytime that you use pumpkins, you can substitute persimmons in the recipe as well. I pulled my FAVORITE pumpkin muffin recipe out of my recipe box (This was one that my grandma Ella gave me.)
