Savory Persimmon Sauce

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

I was gifted several persimmons at pickup last week and I knew that I wouldn’t get them all eaten or baked before they went bad so I had to really think outside of my box for other uses.  I came up with this delectable persimmon sauce to serve over leftover turkey breast.  My big kid (hubby) isn’t a very adventurous eater and would definitely give a side eye to fruit on his meat (welcome to my life) so I just didn’t tell him what the sauce was.  After he happily ate up his serving, I (smugly) confessed that it was a persimmon sauce and he still got seconds.  My daughter loved it too.  We’ll definitely be doing this again while persimmons are in season.  It would also be yummy on chicken or pork.

What is a persimmon and how do you eat one?  Persimmons are bright red-yellow, glossy, and plump with their leaf still attached. Persimmon tastes like mango or apricot.  Though originally from Asia, they are grown in the United States and are in season in the fall.  They can be peeled and eaten as a snack, added to salads, and are delicious in cookies, cakes, or muffins.  This is my recipe for Persimmon Banana Bread.  Enjoy!

I was going to have some fun with these wonderful new thing called persimmons that I had never heard of. Persimmons are not something I know anything about (shocker I know, I really am a newbie about some things. I’m just trying to make it in the big, NOT SO BAD produce world…haha! I like to joke about it now, but what I really am is a reformed extremely picky eater. Who is only learning about certain foods now because I was so closed minded about them before. I am a changed woman :)
