My money order is getting mailed out today! Can't wait to get the pecans. I've never had 'fresh' pecans before.

Yes I do, but it would be towards the end of the up coming week before I could have them ready. My son has been sick and it has thrown me a few days behind. I am trying to finish orders this weekend from this past week.

I just wanted to thank you for these beautiful pecans! They're absolutely huge, fresh, and flavorful. I don't know how many I've eaten just from the bag, but I'll be baking tomorrow.

Thank you, backyardlivin!

Thanks to everyone who have purchased pecans. I hope you enjoy them!!! We still have plenty that haven't even fell yet, the trees are still loaded and the garage is overflowing with mesh bags to be cracked and shelled.

LOL! Recipes of which? There are so many ways to use pecans! After we had butter toasted pecans on our French toast this morning, and thumbprint cookies rolled in finely chopped pecans this afternoon, DH reminded me of pecan crusted fish fillets! I had totally forgotten that one.

Ok, here's my list:
Hubby has a good recipe for pecan pie, so that one's covered.
Would love recipies for:
pecan rolls, butter pecan ice cream, pecan sandy shortbread, pecan turtles, apple pie with pecan crumb topping, pecans toasted in butter and salt on top, toasted pecans for mashed sweet potatoes, toffee with pecans, pecan caramels, oatmeal cookies with pecans, and baked apples stuffed with brown sugar and cinnamon and pecans.

Your list just made my mouth water reading it!! Made me change my order from 3 pounds to 5 pounds!! Of course now we're looking forward to our first fist-full of nuts right out of the box!! Thanks in advance for the recipies!!

Oh wow, not much, eh? I'll need to go digging in the recipe files for some of them, but I can give you some right from the top of my head.

BUTTER PECAN ICE CREAM

Gently toast some pecans in a big skillet by laying down a single layer with a good blob of REAL butter (ick, no substitutes!) over very low heat. Keep them moving; they scorch easily. Don't make it so hot that your butter burns; you want low heat and lots of movement. This brings out the flavor of the pecans and the awesome crunch. When they're toasty brown and fragrant, remove from heat and salt to taste. You can use them as ice cream toppings or fold them into butter pecan ice cream. If you leave them in the skillet, remember to keep them moving until the pan's cool, because they can still scorch. They're fragile, you know. Cool and reserve for ice cream.

To make a gallon of ice cream, beat together in a bowl

6 fresh eggs
2-3 cups sugar, depending on how sweet you like it
3T good vanilla extract
1/2t salt
1 1/2 quarts heavy cream
1 1/2 quarts whole milk

Add this to your churn and churn according to your manufacturer's directions. When the dasher's almost stopping and your ice cream is fully churned, shovel your soft serve into your freezer container, pausing at invervals to quickly fold in your toasted pecans. Add as many or as few as you like, in bits or whole, and get it to the freezer as fast as you can. Oh. My. GOODNESS, this is so good it hurts!

************************************************** ******

Apple Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping

This is an easy one. Make a one crust apple pie with a French apple topping, but add some chopped pecans to the mix. I usually use a ratio for toppings of about 1/4c flour, 1/3c brown sugar, 1/4t salt, 3-4T melted butter, and about 3/4c chopped pecans. Depending on the size of your pie, you might want to double it except for the salt. It might need a foil tent while it bakes, but remove it for the last 20 minutes of baking to get the topping crispy/toasty and really develop the flavor of the nuts.

Mashed Sweet Taters with Pecan Topping

I like to take a few sweet taters, bake, peel, and mash until mealy, and mix with a couple of spoonfuls of orange juice concentrate and sugar to taste. I put this into a buttered baking dish and top with the same type of topping as on the pie, bake to heat through (maybe 350 for 30-40 minutes), and then dig in. It's wonderful left over, too.

************************************************** ********

Baked Apples

This one's super easy. I use little individual ramekins for each apple, spray with nonstick stuff or butter them. Each one gets an apple in it that I've cored and scored. (They're easier to eat with a spoon if you score the peel with a knife. I'm not peeling because the peel's pretty, good for me, and tasty too.)

I set the cored apple upright in the ramekin and make a core filling of a tablespoon or so of brown sugar, a teaspoon of flour, about 2 T chopped pecans, a dab of butter, and a shake or two of cinnamon. I work that mess together with the back of a spoon and then pack it into the core hole.

The little dishes all go together on a small baking pan so any overflow doesn't make it to the bottom of the oven, and I cover each apple tightly with a little square of foil. Then I bake for an hour alongside whatever roast is in the oven, or 350 if there's nothing else. I serve them warm, individually for dessert with a blob of whipped cream or ice cream. They're awesome with pork or chicken meals, and can be made with everything we have on hand.

************************************************** *******

Oatmeal Cookies with Pecans

1c butter (no substitutes, ew!)
1c brown sugar
1/2-1c white sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2c flour (I like fresh milled whole wheat)
1/2t nutmeg
1/2t salt
1t cinnamon
1/2t baking soda
3c old fashioned oatmeal
1c chopped pecans

Beat the first four ingredients together until light and fluffy. Toss together the dry ingredients minus the oatmeal, and add to the wet; then when fully mixed, add the oatmeal. You can chill it at this point or go right to spoonin' it on the cookie sheet. Regardless, drop by teaspoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about ten minutes. Cool on a rack.

An option is to omit the cinnamon and add a cup or so of butterscotch chips. Depends on your mood....

************************************************** ******

Pecan Sandy Cookies with Pecans

This is a favorite here, and they hold well (don't go stale). Marvelous with tea or coffee!

1c butter (no substitutes, ew!)
2/3c confectioner's sugar
1t vanilla extract
1 1/2c white flour
1/2c cornmeal (trust me here, it's a texture thang)
1/4t salt
1/2c finely chopped pecans

Beat the butter until fluffy, then add sugar and vanilla and mix well. Mix the flour, cornmeal, and salt, and mix it in completely with your butter mixture. Add the chopped pecans and mix in thoroughly.

You can chill the dough at this point or try and roll it out; depends on how soft your dough is. Roll it out on a lightly floured board about 1/2" thick. Cut in little circles, squares (a pizza wheel helps here) or whatever shape you fancy. Place on a cookie sheet about an inch apart and prick with a fork, and then bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. Don't let them get brown; just sort of tan on the edges at the most. Cool on a sheet. They're really outstanding when stone cold.

If the cornmeal idea doesn't do it for you, you can use rice flour. Both give a crumbly cookie that's astoundingly good. The commercial ones probably use rice flour, but I like my sandy cookies SANDY, and cornmeal does that better for me.

************************************************** *****

More later, I'm late for chores!
