Giveaway: Pecans

I’ve been so busy, I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time. It’s time to fix that.

This giveaway is for 2 pounds of in-shell pecans! These pecans are grown here on the Ranch. They are, dare I say it …… ¬†organically grown. That is, they aren’t certified, but we don’t use any sprays on them. My Mom uses chicken poo (free range!) to fertilizer them and that is it. Interesting fact about pecans is that they are an alternate bearing crop, which means they have a “heavy” crop every other year. That heavy crop tends to deplete the next year’s crop, which is why you have that pattern.

Once de-shelled these nuts are perfect for pies, candy, cookies, or just plain snacking. If you need any tips or pointers on how to de-shell, dry or need recipes, let me know! I will pick my winner using random.org next Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2011. Just leave a comment below to enter. Good luck!
