Persimmons!!

Thank you Mari. Thank you Kimberly. New followers to my blog...I appreciate you all so much.



Gathered another little handful of colored leaves, as mama would say, "such as they are", for the table on the porch. 

Thank you for looking at my blog and for the sweet comments. I wanted to reply to each one, but...I've got to be at Shelby's this morning at 9:00.

We're going to drive through the country, stop at a thrift store or two, then head on to the cemetery where mama is buried and put new flowers on her grave. Our sweet niece Vicki is meeting us there. 



This is Vicki! Wow, look at the persimmons! She has been gathering persimmons that fall from this huge tree in their grandma's yard, removing the seeds, freezing and selling the persimmon pulp for 5.00 a bag. That's a lot of work for 5.00 but she has made over $200.00!



Vicki has saved some bags for Shelby and me. Can't wait to make a persimmon pudding. I've got mama's old recipe and have tried making the pudding once...which turned out awful. Persimmon pudding is delicious...if it turns out right and has the right texture. All the country folks up that way know how to make it, and Vicki makes a perfect pudding! Miss Vicki blogs over at "get fit by 50 and other things".

Okay, better get busy...here it is almost 6:30!

Love,
Henny

  2. Fascinating - not sure if I've ever seen a persimmon and I definitely wouldn't know what to do with it if I did.
