Try Some Missouri Native Pecans

If you plan on making a pecan pie this Thanksgiving or Christmas then look no further for the best pecans Missouri has to offer.

Missouri Native Pecan Growers can provide consumers with the best native pecans around. And if you are looking for organic pecans, they offer that choice as well.

My mother an I recently attended the Missouri Chestnut Roast, where Missouri Native Pecan Growers exhibited a booth. We left their both with 5 bags a piece of their pecans.

Missouri Pecans grow naturally in the rich river bottom soils of Missouri, in the northernmost region of pecan production. Although slightly smaller than pecans grown in the south, the unique sweetness and higher oil content of these pecans result in extremely flavorful nutmeats preferred by many.

You can purchase these organic pecans from the online store, by phone or email. Toll FREE 1-866-PECANS8

Texas Pecan Pie
By My Grandmother Pat
3 eggs
2/3 cups sugar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/3 C butter
1 C. Syrup (1/2 dark and 1/2 white Karo syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat the eggs well, add sugar gradually, 1/3 tsp. Salt, melted butter, add syrup and vanilla. Do not mix hard for a long time or mixture will become foamy. Pour onto unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle with whole pecans (about 1 C.) Bake at 375 degrees until nicely set and browned. The pie will be a little jiggly in the middle when you take it out.
