    Neighbor gave us a bag full of persimmons. Naturally, I can't turn them down when I know there is something I can do with them! Jams, Jellys or what have you? Need recipes. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance?

    Wish you could send them to me!

    Wonderful in cookies, breads, cakes. Puree them and add to oatmeal. They are sky high in price when you can get them.

    My Aunt use to use them in sauces as a thickener. You couldn't even tell they were in the sauce. Yummy

    Do you have a lot of them in Texas?

    I freeze as many as I can get my hands on.

    And you can layer that with Angel Food cake and cool whip for a very pretty dessert.

    Actually, you can use persimmons in any recipe that you use pumpkin is. They can take the same spices.
