In Praise of Pecans: Recipes & Recollections Cover Image
By June Jackson, Watt M. Casey Jr (Photographer)


From the introduction, which wistfully recalls Ms. Jackson's childhood spent picking out pecans for her mother's candy making, to the candid discussion of the health aspects of pecans, the author evokes nostalgia and a desire to cook with pecans in order to improve our health. The compendium of more than one hundred sumptuous recipes includes the use of pecans in all categories of cooking. As a bonus, each recipe includes a little story or anecdote that enhances one's use of the recipes.
