When Life Gives You Meyer Lemons….

Morro Bay Farmers Market, Morro Bay, Ca: Snapshot of What’s Happening

Morro Bay Farmers Market, Morro Bay, Ca: Snapshot of What’s Happening

This funky, little, central-coast town’s market is slim on produce stalls and rife with Kooky arts and crafts; but, what it lacks in organic, chef notable ingredients, it makes up for with heart and soul.

As you might expect, flowers, succulents and jewelry are everywhere; mix in the smell of fresh kettle korn and smoked sausage, kids with balloons and a few buzzed fisherman, and you got two very entertaining blocks to walk.

Fuyu Persimmons

Fuyu Persimmons are in abundance right now at the markets in Northern California. They should be used and celebrated! Below is a very easy appetizer to serve as a first course or as part of an hors d’oeuvre party. If you want to make it a bit more salad like, add some baby greens like arugula or frisee and cut the persimmon into thinner wedges.

 

Fuyu Persimmons with Passion Fruit Vinegar, Pepper Infused Sea Salt and Parmesan

3 fuyu persimmons

4 T. passion fruit vinegar

3 t. pepper infused sea salt (or ¼ t. cayenne pepper mixed with salt)

1 oz. Parmesano Reggiano

 

Peel persimmon and cut in half. Remove any seeds or core. Cut each half in half again so each persimmon is in a total of four pieces. Place a piece of persimmon on the end of a fork placed on a small appetizer/salad plate. Drizzle each fork of fruit with vinegar and then dust with salt. Using a vegetable peeler, top each piece of fruit with a shaving of parmesan cheese.

 

Makes 12 appetizers
