I am very fortunate; I receive bags of South Carolinian pecans every year as a gift. I have had "walnuts" on my grocery list for months, don't buy any as I am not willing to pay $6.49/lb or more. Pecans are even MORE expensive.Pictured to the left is a repurposed jar that I use for storing nuts in the refrigerator for immediate use, the bulk otherwise is stored in the freezer. Today, I am baking, and I needed to replenish my jar of nuts in the fridge. I went to the freezer and pulled out my last remaining bag of SC pecans. Once these are used up . . . I'll have to wait until I return to SC this Summer, as I highly doubt that I'll be buying any replacements, just too expensive.
