Persimmons are in abundance and with a touch of organic culinary lavender flowers they'll make a heavenly galette!  This is a very lovely autumn recipe, absolutely divine by itself, though lovelier with a shot of espresso, a glass of pinot noir or both.

Additionally, this lovely galette is a perfect alternative in place of pumpkin pie for the Thanksgiving holiday dinner!
