    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!
