  • Thanks Snjezana. It is a slice of fresh persimmon. Persimmons are such a beautiful fruit when you cut them in half they have a star pattern, I wanted to show this in my photo. I cut the slice out with a crimped biscuit cutter so the edges were not smooth.

  • This was delicious. We normally eat persimmons fresh but adding to a pudding was great.

  • Persimmon pudding, that sounds so exotic! I don’t really see persimmons here, so it sounds amazing!
