    1. My grandmother had persimmons in her yard. Every year she had the lovely orange fruits lined up under the window in her service porch, ripening for the cookies and puddings that we would be making with her over the Thanksgiving holiday that we spent at her house. And yes, she always had us help her get as much pulp as we could, and she froze whatever we did not use.
      Unfortunately, grandma is gone now, and I do not have a tree in my yard, so I rely on great sales to grab a bunch of persimmons for our annual treats. She is on my mind every time I see the beautiful fruits ripening on my counter.
      We never made bread with them… it sounds so good. I would love to see that recipe! 🙂

      1. Sounds familiar! My grandparents planted a persimmon tree in 1950–grandpa was a tree surgeon–and they nourished it until they could no longer. It’s 30 feet tall now and produces bushels of fruit every fall. They passed away just 50 hours apart after 71 years of marriage in 2014. Gratefully, my parents live near my grandparents’ old place. For the last several years, they have sent us a box or two of the persimmons they pick from that gorgeous old tree. It’s a long trip from southern California to Alaska!

        We’ve got two persimmon bread recipes. Email me for the files if you want.
        Cheers!
