There are a lot of great dishes that can be made out of persimmons, such as pudding, cake, cookies, pie, etc. Native persimmons are tart and have a lot of pucker power! HAHA! The newer type are sweeter; therefore, it helps to know which a recipe calls for because you will want to adjust the amount of sugar accordingly. If your recipe calls for a larger amount of sugar for a small amount of pulp, it is probably a native persimmon. This is a delicious fudge and is simple to make. I would love to read your comments if you decide to try it! And I certainly hope you enjoy it as much as we do
