I made this after getting some free persimmons and apples. I could not find nectarines out of season so used canned diced peaches. Had my doubts but all flavors come through, even the persimmons. Orange muscat wine comes through nicely. With the Serrano pepper it has medium hotness. Tried it with chicken and rice, very good.
