Louise Hendon | May 18

These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.

The Forgotten Fruit

Persimmons are one of those fruits that always fascinate people and yet scare them at the same time. Persimmons are pretty but “unknown” and therefore “unapproachable.” I’m going to change that!

Then, a couple months ago, I was in my mother’s kitchen, which was full of all the fresh produce that she’d grown in her garden this year. And among all that fresh produce were more than a few persimmons.

I decided, despite my uncertainty, that I just had to do something awesome with the baskets of fruit sitting in the kitchen, including all those persimmons! I stared at them for a while, Googled to see what other people had done, and then created this recipe, which turned out to be way more delicious and much easier than I anticipated.

Hachi-WHAT???
