My all-time fave! None of my sons like it so this is one thing I have all to myself! When I was a small child I can remember my Mommaw going to great lengths to visit her sister and gather these things called persimmons. Never knew or appreciated all the trouble those two women (Lula and Alma) were going through while they were inside preparing darn things called persimmons over 30 yrs ago. Outside playing without a care in the world. When we left we only had bags of orange stuff to take home and freeze! What a waste I thought until that first bite! I have a new appreciation for puree!
