    East Wind Goddess's Note:

    This recipe was originally published in a Los Angeles Times Holiday book waaaay back in the day, and has become a standby recipe at either Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is a spicy bread pudding with the unique flavor of persimmons, which are plentiful in November and December. Be sure that the hachiya persimmons are ripe to the point of being squishy-mooshi; fuyu persimons should be soft and mashed. I'm submitting the recipe as it was published, but be advised that persimmons can be very sweet and it is OK to cut back on the sugar in this recipe. I also have started using black walnuts in this recipe. It always gets rave reviews, so please enjoy!
