I made this pudding 27 years ago, my first time preparing Thanksgiving. My sister was visiting and brought the recipe. We sent our husbands out on Thanksgiving Day to find persimmons! They finally found them. It was fantastic, well worth the effort. I lost the recipe and am happy to have found it again. Can't wait to make it again. Although I was a new cook back then, and didn't do a thing beforehand (we ate at 9:00) still one of my most fun and memorable Thanksgivings!!!
I served this for the first time at Christmas and it was huge succes with the whole family.
My mother makes this every Thanksgiving and it always get rave reviews from all guests. Takes a lot of time and there are a lot of ingredients but it is so worth it. A very special dessert.
This is the best persimmon pudding I have ever made, or eaten. Growing up with a large persimmon tree in my yard, trust me I have had everything persimmon. Would not change a thing!
I HAVE RECENTLY USED THIS RECIPE OVER SEVERAL TIMES, AND IT ALWAYS GET GREAT RESPONSES. IT HELPS TO HAVE A FRIEND WHO HAS A PERSIMMON TREE.
What a brilliant dessert. Impressed all with the flambe. Very moist and the perfect amount of sweetness. Super easy to make.
I thought this pudding was 'the best' I have ever tried! Followed it to a 't' and it came out with amazing consistency, flavor - and the whole family loved. Very much like my great grandmother's recipe. Although not many ratings, THIS IS A KEEPER RECIPE!
