Pecan Sales - A Smith Tradition
Due to recent hurricane activity, this season's pecan prices have increased minimally. We appreciate your understanding and continued support.
Selling fresh pecans has been a New York Smith Club tradition for more than 25 years. Dorothy Guth '50 initiated the pecan sales after noting their popularity at Smith Clubs around the country. She contacted Craig Claiborne—then food editor of the New York Times—who wrote an article titled "9 Tons of Pecans for a Cause" and a tradition began.
The Club continues to offer the three most popular selections: halves, milk-chocolate covered, and dark-chocolate covered. Other varieties (such as cinnamon, glazed, or clusters) are available by special request. Buy in bulk to share with your family, co-workers, and friends, or even to present as hostess gifts. These pecans make a wonderful holiday treat and as always, the net proceeds go to the Smith Scholarship Fund!

A Favorite Pecan Recipe from Ann Hilliard:
Cocktail Spiced Pecans
(Page 24 of "More Cooking With Pecans")
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1 pound shelled PECAN halves
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Melt butter. Add Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and garlic. Heat briefly. Scatter pecans in one layer on a jelly-roll pan and spoon butter sauce over them. Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, shaking the pan and stirring the pecans often. Serve hot or cold.
These can be stored in an air-tight container. A pretty tin box filled with these pecans makes a nice holiday or hostess gift.
