Persimmon Pulp / Persimmon Pudding and other dessert recipes


Anyone have any idea of where I could get persimmon pulp to make persimmon pudding?
Does anyone have a good recipe for persimmon pudding or any other special dessert that is good for the holidays?


Our local supermarket sells the whole fruit…have you looked perhaps at the asian markets in your area or specialty stores?

OOOO, I love persimmons, I have some in my freezer that my dad brought me from his trees! I have a few recipes, but I’ll have to go look them up later! Do you like your persimmon pudding cake-like or custard-like?

Many grocery stores now carry them in the produce section.
