Obviously, Smitty is unaware of HOW we got to this point...linguistically, that is. Pecans are frippin' delicious, so it's no surprise how we got to eating Sofa King many...

So I get that this is a regional pronunciation people get up in arms about might as well say 'wooder' outside of philly, but I've heard pi-cahn and pee-cahn but never in my life have I heard someone unironically say pee-can.

We had a giant pecan tree outside our frat house in socal, a great thing to have in those top ramen diet years. Got a texas inertial nutcracker to make it easier to get at the goodness.

Good. More for us.

For the last 250 years I've made divinity, pralines, pecan fudge, pecan banana bread and butter pecan cookies. I'm not about to give away my recipes.

I had a 40 year old pecan tree at my other house in Georgia, one of the main points of interest when I bought the house. Every year, sacks full of pecans. Then in the 90s, it quit putting anything out. 1994, we had a thunderstorm come through and the tree got hit by lightning. Big old scar down the side too, but the next year it bloomed big and put out more pecans than it ever had.

Thats a lot of years.
Notice how in order to make it even remotely edible you have to cover it in sugar.
It's still nasty.

You could say the same for most nuts, walnuts for for example. Hell even popular nuts (or legumes) like peanuts, cashews, pistachios, etc., taste like crap unless they're roasted and covered in salt.

Visit middle Georgia.

Born/raised in Florida, in our family it was pih-kahn. Living/working fourteen years in small town middle Georgia, all i heard was pee-can. Twenty years later, without thought, I'll use either pronounciation. Seems the more familiar I am with whomever talking with, the more I use pee-can. Dunno why, I just do.

Voice to text is not my friend. But I don't understand how people can eat onions, they're nasty. But that doesn't mean I make fun of them or act like they're stupid.

Had the same thing happen to one of ours. It just up and quit producing.  Among the six acres worth of pecan trees, it* was the one "popped" later on by lightning. I thought it'd die, but nope. The next year, it was loaded with deliciousness.

*Clearing the deadwood out of it, found where someone had, basically, grounded it many years before by running/securing a copper wire from its base to near 'bout 35 ft up.

I'm with you. I would never ruin perfectly good banana bread by adding walnuts. Pecans or nothing.

Sauteed/ baked onions are delish. It's just the raw ones that I don't care for. They are really overpowering. I do use raw onions in a few things, but I dice them into really tiny pieces to mitigate that taste.

Nah see onions are refreshing and delicious, and don't leave you with instant cotton mouth no matter how much sugar you involve in them like your devilnuts do

Really? Because pecans tend towards being a firm and meatier nut. Then again, as a kid we'd collect them or honeysuckle during recess. And I prefer raw pecans over roasted, but your milage may vary. You have to really abuse a pecan to get them dry and dusty.

Where the heck are you getting these terrible pecans? Because even when I was in Germany we got some decent ones in-and that was like '79-'81...

The only redeeming quality that pecan pie has is that you can scrape off the layer of nasty pecans and throw them away, then eat the reasonably tasty pie underneath.

It's cookies where they get you, they're hidden until you bite into one and have to spit and rinse your mouth.

You must have tried grocery store pecans.  Those are the worse!  Not a plug or compensated...but if you want really fresh pecans, get some from Sunnyland farms in Albany, Ga.  Pricey cause they roll s&h into the price of products.  They have all nuts imaginable!  And GAWD ARE THEY GOOD AND FRESH!
