“In The Pecan, acclaimed writer and historian James McWilliams explores the history of America’s most important commercial nut. Southern cooks would have to hang up their aprons without America’s native nut, whose popularity has spread far beyond the tree’s natural home.”

5. Pecan Pie Baby $6.99

“A heartwarming children’s book, Pecan Pie Baby is [an] honest story about jealousy, anger, displacement, and love [that] will touch kids dealing with sibling rivalry and spark their talk about change.”

 

 

“Attributing her own love of this American nut to the state of her birth--Georgia is the nation's leader in growing pecans--and to the happy fact that her mother "hardly made a cookie, candy, or pan of Sunday dressing without them," Kathleen Purvis teaches readers how to find, store, cook, and completely enjoy this southern delicacy. Pecans includes fifty-two recipes, ranging from traditional to inventive, from uniquely southern to distinctly international, including Bourbon-Orange Pecans, Buttermilk-Pecan Chicken, Pecan Pralines, and Leche Quemada.”

 

 

“Nuttin' but Pecans is more than 70 pecan recipes gathered from several areas of the United States as well as overseas. Author Rosie King shows that pecans can be used in unique combinations with other foods and not just in the customary pecan pie”
