"I made this pudding 27 years ago, my first time preparing Thanksgiving. My sister was visiting and brought the recipe. We sent our husbands out on Thanksgiving Day to find persimmons! They finally ..." See morefound them. It was fantastic, well worth the effort. I lost the recipe and am happy to have found it again. Can't wait to make it again. Although I was a new cook back then, and didn't do a thing beforehand (we ate at 9:00) still one of my most fun and memorable Thanksgivings!!!"
