    I never liked persimmon pudding until I tried this. This was my father-in-law's recipe. He was a good cook! Enjoy!

      This was very yummy! The persimmon by itself was terribly bitter but in this recipe it was absolutely delicious!

      I have not yet tried this particular recipe, but persimmons were an integral part of our yearly foraging pattern when I was growing up and we always had frozen pulp on hand. This is an unusual fruit, and care must be taken in order to ensure a pleasant experience. First, and most important, NEVER pick the fruit from the tree, at least until after gaining some familiarity with the fruit, it must be fully ripe and soft, otherwise we call it "puckery" and it is a most unpleasant and unforgettable taste which may put one off persimmons forever. The fruit is best when soft, and it is generally best to wait til they fall. This will vary from one tree to another, some here being good in August while others will not be ready till a frost or freeze. The ones that fall will look nasty sometimes, bits of leaf and dirt stuck to them, but this is MUCH preferable to an unripe fruit. Simply mash them through a colander to remove the seeds and debris, a bit messy true but sometimes really good food requires a bit of work. We are currently in the midst of harvest season here in Southern Indiana, and while we are in the midst of a severe drought and this was a record summer here for heat, the fruit is, to my taste buds, some of the sweetest I've ever encountered. Give it a try, but do it properly, and you should have good results.

      You have to bake it for more like an hour. I put my oven at 315 for the first 35 minutes, then turned it up to 325 and kept setting the timer for 10 minutes. I baked it for another 35 minutes at 325. I used a little less sugar than it called for, too. Probably 3/4 cup. Great recipe, though!! And I shot a photo of mine since there wasn't one here. Use Hachiya persimmons when they are squishy ripe. No bitterness whatsoever. They can also ripen after being picked. The birds can get them or they can fall and splat on your head, as happened to my neighbor.
