Hi Judson,

You must try making persimmon pudding with your next crop. Only need two cups 
of pulp. It is wonderful!  Here is my favorite recipe:

1 C. persimmon pulp      1 stick marj.
1 C. sugar               1/2 t. soda  
1 C. flour               1 t. baking powder
1/4 C. blackberry wine   1/2 t. cinnamon
3/4 C. butter/sweet milk 1 egg 

Sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix persimmon pulp, eggs, sugar and 
cinnamon. Add milk flour alternately and mix well. Use greased and floured 
pan and bake at 325 degrees for one hour. 

Notes - Reduce baking time if batter is less than 3/4" deep. Increase batter 
depth in pan to produce a more pudding like product. This is Jerry's favorite 
served warm from the oven with ice cream.  

This recipe originally came from Mitchell, IN, famous for their annual fall 
Persimmon Festival and cooked products contest. It is low in spices which 
allows the persimmon flavor to come out better.
