Here are my persimmons, ripening to be made into pudding for Christmas.

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?
