 Persimmon Cranberry Relish 
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled The Nut Gourmet by . View all columns in series
Perk up your holiday meal with a dazzling relish that tastes as good it looks. Quick to assemble and easily prepared a day or two ahead, this little meal accompaniment adds that a touch of pleasing sweetness to a savory meal. The art of balancing flavors is easy when you invite tart cranberries and sweet persimmons to the dinner table in the form of a relish to complement both savory and sweet dishes. Toasted nuts put the final touch on this simple condiment.

Yield: about 3 cups

2 cups fresh cranberries

3 ripe Fuyu persimmons

1/4 cup organic sugar
1/4 cup water

1/2 cup toasted cashews, coarsely chopped
6 pitted dates, minced
1/3 cup black raisins
2 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted

2 dashes ground cinnamon
Dash ground cloves
1 cinnamon stick

  1. Pick through the cranberries and discard any that are spoiled. Wash and dry the cranberries and place them in the food processor. Pulse-chop until they are minced but not pureed. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Remove and discard the persimmon stems. Cut 1 slice of persimmon, cut the slice in half, and set both halves aside for the garnish. Cut the remaining persimmons into eight wedges. Place them in the food processor and pulse-chop until they are minced. Transfer them to a medium bowl.
  3. Remove 1/2 cup each of the minced cranberries and minced persimmons and place them in the food processor. Add the organic sugar and water and process until completely smooth. Pour into the bowl with the minced cranberries.
  4. Add the minced persimmons and the cashews, dates, raisins, pine nuts, cinnamon, and cloves, and mix well to distribute the ingredients evenly. Spoon the relish into an attractive serving bowl and garnish with the reserved persimmon slice and cinnamon stick.
