First off, I was born a Texan and know what Persimmons are though haven’t come across them in the 20 years I’ve resided in Washington State. That being said, when three of them arrived in my Bountiful Coop Basket Saturday the rest of my family cringed. “I don’t know what it is and therefore deem it ugly and disgusting..”. So I decided to be sneaky and make your recipe. They loved it and thought it was apple sauce or pumpkin or somethin… At first I thought this should be our little secret but I’m an honest and sneaky person so I confessed and they were delighted. Now I’m eyeballing that papaya…I hate to waste food ; )
