Skill level

  • 700 g brown sugar
  • rind of 2 lemons and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise
  • 100 ml water

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Cooling time 2 hours

You will need to start this recipe 1 month ahead.

To sterilise the jars and lids, boil in water for 10 minutes. Drain on a clean tea towel, then wipe any trace of humidity left inside.

Meanwhile, to make the jam, combine all the ingredients in a heavy-based saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat, then cook, stirring from time to time, for 15–20 minutes or until the jam drips from a spoon in thick heavy drops. Take care as the jam may spit and burn.

Remove from the heat, remove the foam from the surface and discard the spices. Cool for 5 minutes.

Pour the jam into the sterilised jars while still hot and seal with the lids. Turn the jars upside-down and set aside to cool. Turn the jars right-way up, open the lids to release the air, then close again. Set aside in a dark, dry place for at least 1 month before eating. Once the jars are open, keep in the fridge.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Rolled Oats

  • Vanilla Extract (or vanilla powder )
  • Egg
  • Persimmons (it is also known as Sharon fruit)
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Lemon Juice

To make the persimmon jam for this persimmon thumbprint cookies, you will have to tart by peeling the backs of the persimmons and dicing them. Peeling the back ensures you have a smooth jam. Add the diced persimmons into a small saucepan, the sugar and lemon juice. Start mixing and stirring as it starts to boil while simultaneously pressing the fruit pieces to help them break down faster. Remember to do this on medium heat till the water dries up and becomes sticky in consistency.

Persimmons are in season in October through February. I live in Michigan and usually don’t see them on store shelves until late October, but I do live in a small town so that may make a difference! Typically, you will see them late fall- early winter months.

If you are lucky enough to live where persimmons grow, buy them locally if possible! Otherwise, they are usually available at most bigger grocery store chains towards the end of the year.

You can also buy them online if needed. On sites like Farmers Market Online or even Amazon. Please take care when deciding what farm you will buy from.
