Right now, I have one Fuyu persimmon which I was using for still life painting. I am through with the paintings. Mom says, "You need to do something with that persimmon!" OK, Mom! LOL!
It is wonderfully and lusciously ripe so I have "mushed" it up ( my word meaning that I made it into mush in the food processor!) and am making some persimmon muffins....the one persimmon made 1/2 c. of persimmon pulp.
Off to google a recipe now!

[Here is a link to an NPR program about persimmons. Very informative!]
I found a recipe from [this is the recipe, I halved it].
Persimmon Muffins
1c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. allspice
1/4 t. mace
1/4 t. cloves
1 cup ripe persimmon pulp
1/4 c, vegetable oil
1/3 c. honey
2 large eggs
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. walnuts.
Make persimmon pulp in food processor. Add wet ingredients. gently add dry ingredients.
Pour into prepared muffin tins and bake at 350-375 for 12-15 min.
We are changing out our old computer for a new one. This has made getting posts done more we learn how to load and save photos, etc. It won't even publish the post once I write it! So I will publish from Mom's computer!
I had a wonderful weekend and was too busy for a few days, with company to get a post done. My sister and my aunt were able to come for a few days. Because they were here, my two brothers and their wives came over too!
We had a wonderful time and now look forward to more company over the holidays when our children and their families are coming.
So, today in addition to making persimmon bread. I have been up and down a step stool ( a good one!) hanging more Christmas lights. I do NOT go on the roof....but we have well lit bushes and windows! Now off to buy another extension cord and some ornament hangers!
[Getting the indoor tree up too!]
How are you decorating this year?

I've never had persimmon muffins before, but I'm sure they would be good. I'd love to have a persimmon tree to dry out the fruit in my dehydrator. Mmmm, that would be good. Enjoy. Happy Holidays.
