Persimmons are edible berries that are believed to have originated in Asia. Young persimmons have a tart flavor. However, they develop a mildly sweet flavor when ripe, which makes them perfect for making chutney. This persimmon chutney is sweet and loaded with spicy and citrus flavors. To make the chutney, onions, ginger, sugar substitute, Jalapeño, spices, pears, orange zest and juice, grapefruit zest and juice, apple cider vinegar, and persimmons are simmered until the chutney form. You can use this Persimmon Chutney to garnish chicken or pork dishes or serve it with crackers like our Keto Seed Crackers.
