Cin Straw's' notes for this recipe:
This is not I recipe...there was a Fifty State Cookoff (recipes from all 50 states).
This is a real recipe of AR Persimmon Pudding; one thing our State is supposedly known for.
AND NO, I have not made this can't find any persimmons around where I live.

We also have
"Hillary's Chocolate Chip Cookies"
"Arkansas Razorbacks"
and "Arkansas Sin"
YES..these 3 are recipes too.
Guess I should post them also.
I have already shared them with a group I joined called USA State Recipes.

P.S. This is also NOT my photo, it goes with the winning recipe.

We used to gather persimmons when I was a kid. Mama made jelly out of them.

Gail, when I was growing up the persimmon trees were everywhere, very plentiful. You can't find a good one around here anymore at all.
We use to climb the trees and just sit in them eating persimmons untill we almost bust a gut.
I remember after moving here as kid, the first time I ever saw one and the others told me to eat one.......ugh, it was not ripe. After that it was a long long long time before I ever tried eating them again.
