Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook beans according to directions.
  2. Usually frozen beans are boiled for 2-4 minutes and then drained.
  3. After draining, immediately plunge beans into a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking and drain.
  4. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat until hot and sauté persimmons until lightly browned and softened, about 4 minutes.
  5. Add a pinch of sugar to help sweeten the persimmons.
  6. Add beans and 1/4 cup chives and sauté, stirring gently, until hot.
  7. Transfer mixture to a platter and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup chives on top.

Great recipe. It's delicious on its own, and something out of the ordinary to do with persimmons. I used native north american fruit, so the visual wasn't as nice as the photo, but the taste was great.

The persimmons sauteed in olive oil practically melt in your mouth... I was reminded of butter and caramel and couldn't stop eating them! My green beans didn't cook quite long enough and I didn't have any chives on hand, so my version of this dish didn't turn out to be 5-star worthy, but it was still so close that I'm sure it would have been if I had done it properly! It's so nice to find a recipe for persimmons that isn't a bread or dessert. Just for that this recipe deserves five stars!
