Persimmon pudding was often served at holiday get-togethers on my mother's side of the family when I was young. Recently bought some persimmon pulp from a lady who lives nearby. Found a recipe in dear old Mom's file of recipes ("1965 Indiana Winning Recipe"). Yesterday, for the very first time, I made Persimmon Pudding and served it today (Christmas!) to my family. My brother said he liked it and that it tasted like he remembers. My wife ate a little and said it's OK. My son ate one bite and offered the rest to my brother. It's an acquired taste. I like it.
