I took my bucket up to a local place that advertises shelling pecans. They weighed them in at about 6 pounds. For 70 cents a pound they will shell them for you. What a bargain! They were busy so I left them and came back a few days later to pick them up. I got about 2 pounds of pecans.
I spiced them up and shared them with the couple at church.
|My bucket about half full of native pecans.|
|They will crack them or crack and shell them.|
|I thought 70 cents a pound was a bargain.|
|My bucket was a tiny amount compared to the big bags that others had brought.|
|The brown bag of shelled pecans was quite oily.|
|The native pecan is about a half inch long but very tasty.|
|My 6 pounds was about 2 pounds shelled.|
