I love pecan waffles... about the only kind of waffle I'll eat, actually.

Pecans are a gift from on high. So tender, so sweet, with such a delicate oily flavor. They roast well and take savory spice just as well as sweet. They are delicious eaten plain, from the hull. You can crack them in your palm -- just take two of them together and squeeze. One will crack.

My grandfather in Texas used to gather them from the trees every fall and send us a big box full, UPS. Just a cardboard box -- open it up -- a thousand pecans.

How nice that was. I miss him and I miss getting fresh pecans in the mail.

Oh, man, BP -- you just brought back some furious Waffle House memories with your mention of pecan waffles.

Butter pecan ice cream is also very good.

My grandmother used to make turtles with pecans, too -- a melted caramel, a gob of melted chocolate, and 5 pecans for the 4 legs and 1 head. She also put them into divinity and fudge.

I was always disapointed that the waffle house only has like 2 or 3 kinds of waffles. I mean fuck, it's the waffle house.

I'm with you weretable. I'm so pecan-centric that I substitute pecans for walnuts in all my recipes.

When my partner goes home to Savannah sometimes, he'll bring home grocery bags full of pecans from his sister's yard. We're eatin' pecans in EVERYTHING for a while when that happens.

My grandmother used to send us boxes of pecans from the huge pecan tree growing in her front yard.

When the tree finally got so old and weak that it had to be cut down so it wouldn't fall over on the house...well, that was one of my first realizations that nothing lasts forever. No more pecans.

Ah, my favourite nut. We had a pecan tree when we lived in Orange, CA. We had so many we used to bag them up in lunch bags and sell them for a dollar. And we had parrots from Mexico stop by every year for their share.
