A question about a recipe: Chocolate Persimmon Muffins

7249eec5 72fc 46a1 9b44 bcc123d81759  image tjh5997

I have a question about the ingredient "American persimmon pulp, or Hachiya pulp" on the recipe "Chocolate Persimmon Muffins" from thirschfeld. Is there any fruit puree you might suggest instead of persimmon? We are totally out of persimmons and have grown to LOVE this recipe.

I'm crazy about this recipe too and recently subbed 2 cups of banana puree for the persimmons. They weren't as amazing as the original ones, but far superior to run-of-the-mill banana muffins.

I would use some fig, nectarine or plum jam. And I'd add a bit of crushed anise seed if using fig. And I'd reduce the sugar just a bit. ;o)

I've read applesauce can sub for persimmons. I don't know how accurate that is as I've never tried it though.

I've subbed mango and it was an interesting result. Sweeter than the persimmon goods and a little moister, too.

pumpkin--I think persimmons have that spicy fall flavor....
