Persimmons? What in the Sam do I do with persimmons?
Well, I found a recipe, tweaked it, and wah-lah....YUM!
If you happen to be in the same predicament...try this, you'll love it.
4 firm but ripe Fuyu persimmons, peeled, cut into small cubes
(makes about 1 and 1/2 cups)
2 Tablespoons white onion, very finely chopped
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon minced fresh basil
2 teaspoons finely chopped serrano pepper
(take out seeds if you don't like spicy)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon minced fresh mint (optional)
Mix persimmons, onion, lime juice, basil, serrano pepper,
ginger and mint in small bowl.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
We ate ours on plain old corn chips, but I imagine it would be mighty tasty on baked potatoes, fajitas, etc...
