YUKKY after taste, starchy
used this recipe
I used "sauce master" to remove skins and seeds. I also misread recipe and added lemon at beginning. Maybe should have peeled fruit before pureeing through sauce master, even though it says it removes seeds and skins. Maybe persimmons just make yukky jam. Lets see if the chickens will eat it!
