Fuyu Persimmon Chutney

The first time I tasted Fuyu Persimmons was at a Farmer’s Market and it was an absolute delight! With the same memory of taste, I bought them in bulk from Costco but they were flavorless 😦

I knew this was going to go waste if we had to consume all of them as a fruit, so I wanted to use them up in a productive way. That’s when the idea of chutney/pickle flashed into my mind. But I didn’t want to use tons of oil like we do in the regular Indian pickles. That’s how I attempted making this “no oil” chutney/pickle.
