NC Pecans

Most every year, my sweet neighbors Al and Shirley, offer to bring fresh pecans to me. There is an elderly couple who they know near Siler City that have a bunch of pecan trees and they sell nuts, word-of-mouth.

This year, I got "just" 10 pounds for my Christmas baking.....of course, they are not shelled!!

So, I borrowed Al and Shirley's very neat nutcracker and got to work!

Here's a close-up view - it's cool and so simple. Whew...I've cracked alot of nuts!

That really is a neat nutcracker! We only have a decorative one HA! and a little hand held one with the little picks...I think the set belonged to Nanny Gladys...
