Here is a picture of my latest eBay purchase. The pecan is the state nut of Texas (some would argue that perhaps I could be in the running....but that's another story). Well, actually, it is the tree that is the state something or other, but you get my gist. Our pecan crop last year was not very good. These are from Alabama. Even though they are last year's crop they are really good, much better than buying packaged. So I'll be in search of a recipe to make today.
