@artist01, I am the only one in my clan who likes mincemeat. Later wondered if it is the rum? that is added??? Smiles
Like you, pecan pies are my most favorite and the one most requested by family.

At my daughter's one holiday, she'd bought some pecans at her grocers for my "special" pie. They were hard as rocks, tiny and almost bitter! From that experience, wherever she's lived, I annually send her fresh pecans bought from my area.

While our state is a big pecan producer, I have to rely on "store bought" walnuts and wonder if they too are far different from locally harvested fresh???

@fiesty76 My husband was the only one who liked mincemeat pie!
I had a huge walnut tree in my front yard when I lived in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. The walnuts were delicious but so much work in the Fall to harvest and clean. My next-door-neighbour always complained about my walnut tree's leaves blowing into her yard (!), and I was gracious enough to rake them up for her, even though she was 30 years younger than I.
