Notes

If you are using fresh persimmons, you will need to wash and strain the persimmons to make the pulp. 
The key to this pudding texture is to cook it slow and low.  
Cook times may vary.  Begin checking on your pudding after 1 hour.  If you cook too fast, you will have a cake like texture instead of a pudding.  You should be able to slice the pudding into squares once the pudding is cool. They will still have a soft, moist texture, almost wet.  
Cost is based on Free Pulp.
