National Pecan Day

Today is the national day for one of our most versatile nuts – the pecan.  I love them in pies, in waffles, frosted with coatings both savory and sweet.  Soft, with a laid back tang I will take them in any form I can find them.

The only controversy is how these tasty treats are pronounced.  There are two distinct choices.  I prefer the refined pi-kahn.  As Alton Brown says, the alternative pee-kan is something a long distance trucker uses to reduce stopping as often.  Sorry about that.
