A co-worker brought me 5 or 6 fuyu persimmons and told me to make a hot sauce for him.  i'm thinking habanero as the pepper.  Anyone ever use persimmons in their hot sauce?  What else you put in it?  I think onion would work, but not sure about garlic.  Thoughts?

Yeah sure onion and roast the garlic so it is sweet and add some lime and honey. I'm thinking some carrot would help bulk up the sauce as well as complement the persimmon. I usually don't go with apple cider vinegar but here it would prob. be nice. That, or cane, or white wine (not white distilled). Cheers!

roast the garlic first, it will go a little better......could also roast the carrots, i didn't try that

This combo definitely caught my attention. Brought back memories of my grandparents sending me and my cousins out in our woods with backpacks to harvest them for making jams. Would love to know how it turns out and maybe a recipe.

yeah I was confused...although bells have worked great in the sauces I have used them in. In this case the persimmon would provide the sweetness...

Don't let him fool ya.    Just last week I saw ColdSmoke sneak out behind his garage and eat two orange bells!


So many peppers, so little time!             GO  BUCKEYES !            Anymore, it seems the only thing I get done quickly is get older

 

New goal in life:   I hope I get grandchildren before I get a walker

Agave syrup is actually very similar to high fructose corn syrup, it is highly refined and high in fructose. I admittedly have fallen for the hype and had a couple bottles but I didn't actually like the taste... I'd much rather use honey or maple or fruit juice or turbinado or even refined white/brown or molasses. But for more info on agave syrup:

For this sauce I say honey all the way!
 
I know the agave train was derailed a couple years ago but I thought I'd share for those still thinking it is health food.

That's a perfectly good reason to use! I never liked it myself, but can see how in right combo works.

Despite common misconceptions, HFCS has about the same amount of fructose as table sugar. And fruit juice can contain a ton of fructose depending on the fruit. Apple juice has more fructose than Coke made with HFCS. Honey is marginally better. Any of those things in large quantities are bad for you, but we're talking about small amounts in hot sauce. Bottom line, don't sweat it. Use what tastes good.

I know there's hype around HFCS similar to MSG hype, that wasn't my point, but that agave is highly refined and high in fructose but many people think it is health food compared to other sugars, but it's basically the same as the bad ones (if not worse by some talk)... so if choosing for "health" you're not doing yourself any favors. For taste, sure, go for it.

hate to break it to you guys.  I didnt use agave or honey.  I was going to add honey at the end if i didnt think it was sweet enough, but the persimmons were enough.  It was delicious and a sauce that i'm definitely going to work to refine.  I kept it fairly simple.  Persimmons, habanero, roasted garlic, some spices and lemon juice.  It's definitely going to sweep the hot pepper awards in a few years.
