My British mother makes the best persimmon pudding. I've always preferred it to her Christmas pudding in spite of the the potential of finding a dime. I know, they should have been sixpences but you make do with what you have.
BTW, have you tried the very sweet fuyu persimmons? They are wonderful with a texture a little like a tomato but sweeter and persimmony. How they would do in a pudding is another question altogether.
I've never tried them. I saw them in the store when I bought these. I momentarily considered buying one but then was distracted by something else. I will make a note on my shopping list this week. Thank you.
I am familiar with the traditional Christmas Pudding as my first wife was British (that is another story) and we boiled a few up over the time we were married. However, I have never heard of persimmon pudding. Since I will be off work for two weeks around Christmas, I thought that it might be interesting to make one for a day in the Christmas Season. Can you reccomend a recipe? Is it boiled or baked?BillB
