This easy, healthy and seasonal dessert recipe is totally dreamy. We're just bonkers over the thought of fresh apple, persimmon, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar marrying to make a velvety smooth applesauce with rich and complex seasonal flavors.

2 persimmons, peeled and cubed
6 apples, peeled and cubed (I used granny smith)
1 Tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ Tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
1 cup water
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 Tsp. fresh lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil.

Cover and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for 25-30 minutes.

Mash apple sauce with a potato masher until it’s your desired consistency.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Can also be frozen and stored for up to a year.
