    Molly53's Note:

    Persimmons are a valued and prized fruit, especially true for those who enjoy persimmon baked pudding, an early European-American dish which is likened to pumpkin pie or plum pudding in texture. Some autumn and winter meals are not the same without dessert made from persimmons. This red/orange fruit is best harvested after the first frost. From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

      This recipe had a very good flavor, the persimmon shined through very well. The issues that came up only had to do with quantity. I would recommend making one and a half times the amount of filling, and double the meringue. My pie turned out tasting good, but looked so piddly because there wasn't enough filling or fluffy meringue for the top.
