      Elena - We grow persimmons. I made your recipe and was delighted with the flavor and blend of spices for the fruit. I baked one version with gluten free flour, butter and pecans, and a second batch with regular flour, lard and raisins. Both are outstanding. Very well done and it is great to find another who appreciates persimmons! Best regards, Amos
