Last night it was cold outside (it even snowed ever so slightly)
so we came home and started a fire in the woodstove. We had stopped at the grocery on the way home and I saw some persimmons in the produce area. There were 3 things that I was interested in learning more about this year. I noticed that all the really great cookbooks included recipes with figs, persimmons and pomegranites.
I have seen many food blogs that feature these items and I had seen a lovely salad on another blog at: Blessed Femina

I wondered if I could find a recipe that was suited for Afternoon Tea. I opened my kitchen buffet to look through my tea books.
I thought I would start here and then move on to the cookbooks:
Actually I had started a file folder too labeled "persimmons" and found a recipe I had copied from Martha Stewart's Christmas (1989) which is my all time favorite book that she has done. There was a PERSIMMON PUDDING on page 59. How festive for the Holidays!
Martha always does the unusual and here it was....
I had tried my hand at steamed puddings before but I want to try this! Perfect for Afternoon Tea!
I did run out of time however...so another day for the persimmons. You CAN SEE my other Steam Puddings by clicking HERE
