Thanks for the heads up, norgeskog. I didn't know that!
Audeo,

Do you ever go down to the Dallas Farmers Market? We used to buy huge bags of pecans down there when we lived in Texas. We'd go down at least once a month (but we didn't buy pecans each time...).

John
Good morning ronjohn and all.

The Dallas Farmer's Market is only a half hour's drive (without traffic) from me and, to tell you the truth, I hadn't thought of going down there, and don't know why. What a great idea for the weekend! That is such a wonderful place...no telling what else I will find and drag home!

Thanks for the reminder! It's sure a lot more fun than Costco.......

To anyone intending to use pecans in traditional European recipes, I remind you that pecans are indigenous to the United States and therefore improper in those recipes. Furthermore, pecan oil rapidly becomes rancid in air when compared to almond or hazelnut oil. Traditionally, German Xmas cookies, made with almonds and/or hazelnuts are stored in airtight boxes for a long time. This cannot be done as well with bastardized German pecan cookies.

This year I am going to experiment making hazelnut and maybe pecan cookies by substituting those nuts with almonds and artificial hazelnut and pecan flavoring.

The look really good, particularly for that price. I used to live in Silicon Valley, CA and we used to buy nuts direct from the farmers on the way back from Lake Tahoe. They were good, but they cost more than that several years ago.

Interesting stuff, aruzinsky, probably too exotic for my bland Norwegian palette, but interesting nevertheless.
