Persimmons and Sweet Potatoes--a deadly combo?

James G | Nov 22, 2005 06:15 PM

This afternoon my Chinese teacher and I were discussing my Thanksgiving menu and I mentioned that, among other things, I would be serving a cranberry-persimmon relish and a sweet potato brulee. She reacted with horror at the idea of serving persimmons and sweet potatoes at the same time, since the two ingredients should never be eaten together, lest all who eat them become terribly ill. I have never heard of such a thing, nor can I find any reference to such a problem on the internet, but perhaps someone else knows about it? If so, please let me know, before I kill my dinner guests!
