[NAFEX] Canning recipes for astringent type persimmons

I have an unknown variety of astringent persimmon that came with the  
place when we bought it.  This is one of its heavy bearing years and  
they are just starting to ripen.  Does anyone have a recipe for making  
jam or persimmon butter using fully-ripened astringent persimmons?   
The year before last I tried making a batch of persimmon butter only  
to discover that prolonged cooking turns the ripened fruit astringent  
again.  That last taste was a rude shock!

The pulp freezes well for use in pancakes, muffins, and so on, but I'd  
really like to be able to make something cannnable as this year I have  
very limited freezer space and it looks like I've got a good crop  
coming on.

Any ideas?
