Persimmon Pudding

This recipe is from one of the lovely ladies at church Nita Sappington. I've never tried a recipe with persimmons but I'm determined to try it this fall when they become ripe.
Encase you don't know about them they grow wild here in Nortwest Arkansas. But you need to wait till a frost has happened to help them to ripen or they're very bitter.
