These Persimmon & Mozzarella Bruschettas with Balsamic Glaze make the perfect finger food whenever you have to entertain. Serve them as an appetizer nibble or as part of a buffet.
Originally from Asia, persimmons are such a Winter treat. They are so delicious and pair beautifully with cheeses such as mozzarella.
This recipe is easy and straightforward. It makes around 12 small bruschettas. You can of course scale it up if you need more. The balsamic glaze can be done very quickly and it is worth making your own rather than buying one that is already made.
Just make sure you get top quality buffalo mozzarella as it is much more flavoursome and creamy than cow’s milk mozzarella.
