Utter delight to stand under a heavy laden persimmon tree after the first frost and suck that yummy orange fruit away from the seeds!
If you get one that is wrinkled and soft and a bit mushy...yes!
If you get one that is almost but not quite fully ripe...you get fuzzy teeth and a fuzzy tongue...but still good.
If you get one that is not ripe...trust me, you don't want to do that!
In a box of old recipes from High Rock, I found what I am pretty sure is in Granny Cole's handwriting....her Persimmon Pudding recipe!
Pretty sure this stuff is going to be in Heaven!
Also found this Aunt Ruthie picture.
Another memory from Granny's Pantry.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
