I was strolling through the local grocery store, in the baking goods aisle and low and behold guess what I laid eyes on..............
Pecan Pie in a JAR! A JAR! I did a double check. Yep, there it was in a clear Ball Jar marked PECAN PIE. I guess you just open and pour contents into a pie shell and bake.
No I didn't buy this.....no self respecting Southern Bell would dare make Pecan Pie from a JAR! Are you kidding me?
Damn, I shoulda checked the price on it....have you noticed how much pecans are costing these days? Even our Sunday Rag had a column about that.
My Nanny has 2 pecan trees, and every 2 years we get a great crop. I can remember me and my Papa would crack them and pick em out for pies and cakes or just general eating. They sure do stain your hands.
My Granny would sugar them.....now THAT'S good stuff.
(And YES I say Peeeeeeeeeeee Can - not pecahhhhn. Hubby gets a kick outta that.....peeeee can. Cracks him up.)
Does this discovery of mine mean we are getting more and more close to becoming like the cartoon characters "The Jetson's" with their push button food server and robot maid and grooming devices?
