Itâ€™s time to get nutty! Most folks know that fresh almonds and walnuts abound in Northern California. But pecans? I found them for the first time at our Sunday farmersâ€™ market (8th and W Streets) this fall. Exclusively sold by Calvin Acres Pecans, youâ€™ll pay $6 for a 1-lb bag.
These naturally sweet nuts wonâ€™t be around long! This Sunday is your last chance of the season. After that, youâ€™ll have to wait until next fallâ€™s crop. But donâ€™t worryâ€”if you want to eat pecans in the summer, stock up now. You can freeze and enjoy them until the next harvest.
