virginia duncan Recipe

By virginia duncan duncan2929

Persimmons trees are plentiful around Arkansas and if you bite into one before it's ripe you'll find it's very bitter. It becomes ripe after the first frost. Also the old wives tales say if you split the seed in two depending what you see a spoon, knife, or fork it will tell if there will be alot of snow, ice, or cutting cold scheduled for the winter. This is Betty Duncan's recipe.
