Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Remove stems from persimmons. Scoop out pulp and puree. Do not use peels. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add water and lemon juice.
  • Stir pectin into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 4 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    I have never really liked persimmons, but we have a persimmon tree on our property. I followed the recipe and it made 7 small jelly jars. It is really good. Several people have requested the recipe :)

    I made 38 pints with this recipe of useing frozen persimmons I had from my grandmother's old tree outside my patio that had withstand hurricane katrina's winds.It was full of green persimmons & not a one fell for the storm.Then about a week later they started turning ripe.I put them in the freezer until I'm ready to jam.I blanch them ,taking off the skin , then juiced them in a jucier.They came out wonderful & sweet, just in time for Christmas.
