Dear Robyn - I'm still puzzled about what's going on, what's happened to your blog, and where you've gone to. Have you taken your other blogs off the internet?

Whatever is happening, I hope you are well and happy and WARM.

Much love - Alice.

The recipe sounds great. Did you use the hard (fuyu) or soft (hachiya) persimmons?
