Recipe: Fuyu Cream Crusty

My latest obsession? The tiny variation of the persimmon known as a Fuyu. Fuyu's are bright orange. They taste sweet and succulent. I could gobble them straight from my fruit bowl all day long, but I wanted to use them in a snack sandwich. Thus my recipe for Fuyu Cream Crusty Sandwich.

And FYI...Persimmons are super fruits.
