It is about persimmon season in Texas and elsewhere and I thought it might be a great time to share some of the delicious recipes we have used over the years. It is good to remember that some persimmons are sweeter than others. Some have a lot of "pucker" power. You can adjust sugar to the sweet or tartness of the persimmons you are using. Also, you can leave out the raisins and/or nuts to your personal taste. Either type of raisins can be used, we just prefer the golden raisins. I hope you enjoy this recipe and would like to hear any comments you may have.
