    Persimmon Jam-like Substance



    INGREDIENTS:



    Bag of ripe persimmons, looked to be 1.5 Q

    Enough water to cover cleaned berries

    3 lemons of juice

    3 T low/no-sugar powdered fruit pectin

    2 C sugar



    Wash persimmons and remove blossom end. Place in a 6- to 8-quart stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Add water. Bring mixture to a rolling boil. Mash persimmons, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Lay pulp in a strainer to remove pits and measure 4 cups of liquid. Add water if you don't have quite enough juice, or divide recipe if you're too short. Stir in lemon juice and pectin and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Stir in sugar all at once and let mixture return to a full rolling boil that can't be stirred down. Boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. ladle into hot, scalded 1/2-pint jars. Leave a 1/4-inch headspace and seal. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

    @TraciInTexas, are you using the Hachiya or Fuyu persimmon? or maybe it doesn't matter?

    We used to have a Hachiya persimmon tree in our backyard when I was little. The soil must've been so fertile b/c we got persimmons by the bucketload. I never liked them then but i've grown to love them now as a grown-up!

    These were wild, native persimmons. I hear the cultivated ones are much better.

    And YES, they did jell up quite well. Not Apple butter consistency, but a jelly consistency.
