Persimmions... Who has tried them?
Our "Beekman's 1802 Heirloom Dessert" challenge was to make Steamed Persimmon Pudding. Where we live they look at you like you are crazy when you ask for Persimmions. I have eaten them before while I lived in South Carolina. They are okay... not my favorite fruit.
Anyway, since we couldn't get any Persimmions here, we decided to use the little Asian Apple pears in the recipe instead. They were very tasty, We really enjoyed them. I would love to try the recipe again with Persimmions.
