This dairy-free delicacy is for everyone who loves ice cream but doesn't love all of the oil, sugar, salt, and artificial flavors and colors that are typically included in store-bought vegan (and non-vegan) ice creams. But make it quick, as persimmon season will soon come to a close. Enjoy!Print
I love nutmeg, and you'll find it in many of my recipes. It's a sweet, vibrant spice. It is an egg-shaped seed about 1 inch long and is typically grated or ground using a fine grater (like a Microplane). The first harvest of nutmeg trees takes place 7 to 9 years after planting, and the trees reach full production after 20 years. It is the only tropical fruit that is the source of two different spices: nutmeg and mace (the outter red covering of the seed, which is mellower in flavor). Once you try whole nutmeg, you'll probably never go back to pre-ground.
