Spanish Persimon Chutney

One of the lovely things about being a blogger, is that you randomly get sent gifts through the post. This weeks gift was a box of Spanish persimon. Unfortunately, when I cut them open it appears that they may have been bumped around in delivery a bit, but it seemed a shame to waste them. I therefore thought I would make a chutney, perfect with cheese and biscuits and great for the forthcoming party season.

I decided to opt for a mixture of demerera and white sugar to give it more of a Christmas vibe. If you don't like your chutney too spicy, maybe add a little less chili.The persimon don't break down as much as mango would, so the smaller you chop them the better.

  • 4 large Spanish Persimon 
  • 50ml white wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes

  1. Peel and chop the Spanish persimon into small chunks
  2. Add all the ingredients into a saucepan and cook until the persimon have softened and broken down, to a jam like consistency. 
  3. Allow to cool and serve with your favourite cheese and cold meats.
