I'm glad you are carrying on the family tradition. I wonder if my sister Laura has this recipe? If you have an email address for her you could send it to her, then 2 of you'd be carrying it on. You know I won't since I don't like persimmons at all. LOL I'll copy and paste it and send it to Amanda. I don't know if she even knows what persimons are, being raised by me.
