Pee-canz? Peh-kahnz? Peh-canz? Pronunciation of this word is apparently a huge point of contention for some people. (Much like the ever popular Mi-zer-uh / Mi-zer-ee [Missouri] debate in my own family.) Whatever you call them though, the only thing that makes pecans better is butter and sugar. Which leads me to pralines. Oh, pralines… mmmm…. (give me a minute…)I distinctly remember the first (and only) time I’ve tasted a fresh, warm, still soft praline. It was in Savannah in the spring of 2005, and I was leading a week-long tour to the birthplace of Girl Scouting with my Senior Troop.
As we walked down River Street along the Savannah River, a heady fog of sweet, caramelly perfection surrounded us and drew us into the iconic River Street Sweets shop. There, we sampled rich, buttery, nutty bites of heaven that seduced our senses and caressed our palates. We could not have escaped if we had wanted to. And we did not want to.
Unfortunately, pecans do not grow well in my corner of the world, so all of my other praline memories involve a box full of hard, overly sugared pecan pucks that tasted like last year’s stale leftovers. Nope. Having tasted the real thing, there is nothing left for me to do now except make them myself.
Pralines, however, are only one of the many delicious ways to enjoy pecans during the holiday season. Here’s some amazing pecan recipes gathered from some of my favorite food blogs.
