I for one was happy to see them in our basket again this week. Mostly because that means I get to make Persimmon Salsa again! We love salsa around here in many and all varieties and regular ole salsa jazzed up with some hot orange Persimmon did not disappoint our eyes (isn't persimmon the prettiest color?) or our taste buds.
Here is how I made mine:
garlic, fresh or garlic salt (or both!)
1/2 serrano pepper (these peppers are smaller than jalapenos but are much hotter. Add gradually. The 1/2 pepper was almost too much for my kiddos. But they still ate it!)
juice of 2 limes
Chop and dice it all up (or be lazy like me and throw it in the food processor!) Taste it and adjust any flavors spices as needed.
This salsa could be made with red tomatoes as well. Or as an all fruit salsa and served with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips.
