Ingredients:

    4 persimmons (Fuyu variety *) (about 20 oz)
    1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
    4 tsp honey
    1 Tbsp lemon thyme leaves or lavender flowers

Directions:

    Slice Fuyu persimmons* into wedges and divide between 4 bowls or serving dishes. Add a 1/4 cup dollop Greek yogurt; drizzle with honey. Scatter with thyme or lavender flowers and serve.

Variations:

    * If Fuyu persimmons are not available or if preferred, can use peeled, ripened original variety.

    FUYU PERSIMMON: A sweet Japanese persimmon and non-astringent. Round in shape with a slightly flattened top, it's diameter is about 4 inches. It is best eaten crunchy and firm like an apple and can be eaten with or without the peel.

    ORIGINAL PERSIMMON: A large, heart-shaped American persimmon and astringent. When fully ripened, peel the fruit; the flesh is then soft, jelly-like and very sweet. (Note: If eaten too early, the astringency will be unpleasant.)
