|One of my pecan trees|
If there is anything in Alabama in abundance food wise, it is PECANS!
In my own yard, I have 4 trees, all dropping pecans. The photo here was a couple of hours of gathering time from my own yard, and it equalled like 65 lbs of pecans. In total, and there are still plenty of them in the trees, we have gathered over 150 lbs of pecans from my own yard. That's way more than I can use this year, so we sold them. I have currently a 5 gallon bucket full and more falling!
That means I have plenty for holiday baking and trying new recipes out :o)
On my list of recipe ideas...
