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.
Jim, 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... Bob/Dallas On Sun, 12 Sep 2004 19:15:06 -0500, Pecan Jim Gundlach wrote: <Snip>
Bob, 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. Jim On Sep 12, 2004, at 7:20 PM, Bob Baker wrote: <Snip>
Thanks, Jim I figured something like that. My wife has a pecan pie recipe with 5 Cups of pecans that will knock your socks off...wow hope to get some this year... Bob/Dallas On Sun, 12 Sep 2004 20:35:00 -0500, Pecan Jim Gundlach wrote: <Snip>
Bob how about sharring that pecan pie recipe RK
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! Bob/Dallas <Snip> <Snip>
Thanks Bob, it sounds delisious
Jim: We all know what a fabulous roaster you are, I am thrilled and cannot wait to brew it up. Ginny
