Persimmon Guacamole & other persimmon ideas

rworange | Oct 9, 2007 03:57 PM

There's a discussion about persimmons on the general board.

A local tv show just made a guacamole with persimmons. Not sure if that would be a good combo, but it surprisingly looked pretty.

2 ripe avocados, pits removed, flesh scooped out with a large spoon, put face down on a plate
1/4 cup red onions, finely chopped
1 Fuyu persimmon, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 chipotle in adobo, seeded and minced + 2 teaspoons of the adobo sauce
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt

And to restate the instructions, uh ... mash avacado and mix in all else.

Here's a few past links on persimmon recipes on Chowhound.

French Toast with Hachiya Persimmons filling

Persimmon goat cheese tart

Kind of surpised there's only one persimmon recipe on Chow, but maybe in the future this will link to more.
