Black Sapote and Pecan Tart

The black sapote is an elusive tropical fruit. Occasionally I find them at farmer’s markets, and sometimes a friend surprises me with one. They’re a rare treat, and I savor every one that finds its way into my kitchen.

Black Sapote Mousse

Black sapote is a unique tropical fruit.  It’s often called “chocolate pudding fruit” because the pulp is the color and texture of chocolate pudding.  It’s a type of persimmon native to Central America. They grow in Florida, and you can find them at farmer’s markets from December-March.
