I am from Henryville, Indiana, originally from New Albany. My Nanny (grandmother) always made this for the holidays, however I was a little confused when I was checking her recipe against the recipes on here. Ours is never stirred, it is meant to have a crust and the consistency of pumpkin pie only thinner. That was always what I loved about it, that chewy outer layer and the gooey inner pudding is to die for. So I guess what I wanted to say is that, it is just as good if not better and a lot less work to just leave it cooking and not stir it. Yes it does come out more cakelike but it is delicious. I think as with all old recipes that it just depends on how our ancestors prepared it and if your all's ancestors are anything like mine were about 1/2 of any recipe was in their heads and up for revision with each preparation. I think if you put all the right ingredients in it, there isn't really any wrong way to make this stuff, it's yummy no matter what. Also, Kerry anyone is allowed to upload a picture of the recipe, there can be 10 or 20 different pictures of the same recipe, people just have to scroll through them, but I agree this picture looks nothing like the traditional Persimmon pudding we make around here, but it doesn't look that bad, I'd eat it. LOL Happy Turkey day.
