Persimmon and Apple Crumble

How is everyones 2015 going so far? Up here in Scotland its still in the depths of winter and its very cold, especially at nights. So as far as I am concerned warm comforting desserts are the order of the day and this Persimmon and Apple Crumble fits the bill perfectly. This dessert is just the ticket to help fight those wintery blues. The lightly spiced fruit is warming and juicy. Have you tried persimmons before?
