Let's face it -nobody has ever done a more complete book for preparing for the Holidays than the 1989 classic "Martha Stewart's Christmas" Book. I pick it up year after year and reread the recipes and look at those wonderful photos!
Last week I bought 3 persimmons at the grocery store and on Thanksgiving Day I decided to make Martha Stewart's Steamed Persimmon Pudding! I have 4 lidded pudding containers and used the 2 quart size for this pudding:
The smell of the persimmons - by the way - these must be very ripe indeed- was a little like a mango...
I used a lidded turkey roaster and filled it with water 1/2 the way up and steamed the pudding for 2 hours 15 minutes!
It came out looking wonderful! I followed Martha's instuctions and made the lemon sauce which I poured over the pudding...
The cinnamon spice gave it a light spice flavor that was very nice!
A very pretty presentation and also unique!
