RECIPE OF THE WEEK | Cranberry Persimmon Relish

Cranberries and fuyu persimmons make a colorful autumn relish in which the sweetness of the persimmons is a perfect foil for the tart cranberries. Fuyu persimmons, which are eaten while still crisp, are sold in many supermarkets and natural food stores.


Makes 2 servings

2 fuyu persimmons
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon agave or other sweetener
1/2 tablespoon ground ginger


Remove stems, then coarsely chop persimmons in a food processor. Add cranberries, orange juice concentrate, sugar or other sweetener, and ginger.

Process, using quick pulses, until coarsely and uniformly chopped.

Let stand 20 minutes before serving.
