Fall means it’s time to bake something with pecans in them. Falls favorite nut. Perfect recipes for all season long.
Since I was a little girl, it was always a treat when fall came around and the family would get together to go pick pecans that have fallen from the tree. This is a southern tradition and pecans make fall come alive with all the recipes you can make with them.
My dad would sit for hours cracking and picking out the pecans to put in bags for the freezer. I learned very early in life that you made your freezer stash of pecans last the whole year. I do have a few bags in the freezer now that came from my mom’s. Mr. G and I may have to make a special trip to Georgia to buy a bunch next year since Florida doesn’t have pecan farms in our area.
I do have a secret though. I’m not a big fan of Pecan Pie. GASP!! I’m not really sure why, but I love recipes with pecans in them. Just not Pecan Pie.
And the question for the day is:
How do you say pecan? Pa-kawn or Pe-can
I hope you enjoy this list of recipes made with pecans and let me know if you try any of them. I’m definitely going to try the Keto Salted Pecans.
