Pecans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have always liked pecans, but never knew how good they could be. When I first had them fresh, they were almost a different thing. Those of you who haven't had them fresh might be in for a surprise.

My sis ordered some for me from Sunnyland Farms in Georgia, and now they're one of my favorite things. I especially like the orange-flavored ones and their turtles. Their business has gotten a lot bigger since then in a short time, but hopefully the quality will stay the same--I say it's definitely worth a try. Get some really fresh ones and they're not the same as the ones in the baking section in the supermarket.

the pecan tree is our state tree. I have 3 in my yard. Can't get much fresher than hand picked and hand shelled. I remember as a little girl around the age of six, picking up pecans and putting them into pillow cases. Ahh, nostalgia, I do love pecans.
It's a wonderful thing to be spoiled in the way of food.

Oh, that one takes me right back to childhood! My mom used to make something similar all the time in the summer, and to this day, I still can't think of it as summer unless I've had that salad. :)

I used to live in a house where we had a pecan tree in the back yard. Every 2 years we'd pick up pounds & pounds of them. In the inbetween years we'd get a about a pound. I never figured out why the every-other-year thing :confused:
