In Praise of Pecans
Recipes and Recollections
In Praise of Pecans by June Jackson
Book DescriptionLong before pecan pie and pralines, the Native American population both feasted and subsisted on pecan nutmeats. Then, as now, the majestic trees - native only to the United States and parts of Mexico - dotted the landscape, providing nourishment and beauty, giving a double meaning to 'Native American Nut'. History tells us there's much more to the pecan than pie. The recipes in this book - over 100 of them - lead us to use pecans in salads, entrees, breads, sides and snacks, enhancing our daily fare with round-the-clock delectability. Seldom do flavour, nutrition and a "good read" go so well together!
