|Bags of pecans|
Here is a gift from a person in the country. They have some Pecan trees and said "hey, we have too many, do you want some?" Um, YEAH!
That's the reason I bought our own pecan trees last season. Someday, we hope to have so many pecans that we too can say we have "too many"...but really, is there such a thing as too many? I suppose if you don't like pecans yes, but we happen to love them, especially in that Southern staple, Pecan Pie.

These are full one gallon bags, total weight about 6 lbs. It's my understanding that you can expect about 50% in actual meat once they are shelled. So we'll have a shelling party soon and end up with about 3 lbs. That should give us a few pecan pies and best of all, they are going to gather some more for us.
Any favorite pecan uses you have? I know we can freeze them once shelled and use later in the year.
