Topic: Two Traditions Winners (8 msgs / 148 lines)
1) From: Pecan Jim Gundlach
The winners of the drawing for the random mix of pecan roasted 
leftovers are Gene Smith and Dave T.   I've prepared a third for Ginny 
for her birthday.   This has been a most popular tradition offering, 
lowest odds of winning of any that I have ever done.   I'll have to do 
it again sometime.
     Good luck.

Where you at?
I've got a pecan in the back yard that will make 300lbs one year and 0 the  
next...what's the deal?
The tree makes huges nuts when it makes nuts...

       I'm in Alabama, halfway between Montgomery and Auburn.  Unless 
you irrigate and fertilize pecans, they tend to fruit on cycles.  It 
really takes the care of a commercial operation to get regular nuts and 
even then there is some cycling going on.  It is like they need a year 
to store up the energy to put out the nuts.  From an evolutionary point 
of view it makes sense.  Don't put nuts on one year to let the 
squirrels die back from starvation and then produce loads the next when 
there are fewer squirrels so some of the nuts will make it into the 
ground and grow.  I just freeze enough for two years when I get a crop.

Bob how about sharring that pecan pie recipe

6) From: Bob Baker
I'll get it together for y'all...
It's the best one I've had...
some of the nuts are toasted in the oven with butter and crushed,
but I'd never heard of one with that many nuts...
stay tuned!
