Another recipe from the test kitchens of my relatives. This one came from Mrs McGillicuddy, who is discovering the joys of foodstuffs available in Georgia.

They are yummy.

Thank you! Particularly interesting that the pronunciation I am familiar with is PEEcan, which comes from the East Coast, but the majority of places say peeKAHN - I didn't know that smiley - ok

You can add the link to the Cooks' Measurements Entry A87797867 somewhere smiley - ok

" a few tablespoons" - a tablespoon is quite large, so I wonder if 'few' needs to be made more precise - is it 2 or 3 tablespoons, or more?

I can't visualise steps 3-5, sorry... Do you take the pecans out of the egg mixture, or put the sugar into the egg mixture, or is the egg mixture just the right amount to coat all the pecans with not much liquid left over?

I like that you've included the link to the Backyard Chickens, but the sentence doesn't have quite the right flavour, I think - seems to say "They are vegan if you substitute the egg white, but if you are vegan and keep chickens then you eat eggs and are not vegan" smiley - laugh Maybe put the footnote on the first mention of egg white and say it is a good use of home-raised-chicken eggs?

"As This Researcher's Mississippi grandmother would have said, 'That little bit of sugar is not going to hurt you.'" - smiley - ok

smiley - ok I, of course, say 'pick-AHN' because as a child, all of my pecans arrived in a paper sack in a pickup driven by a relative from Mississippi.

I hope it is now reasonably clear. smiley - rofl I shooed the chickens away from the vegans so as to avoid offending them. smiley - chick

Setting the oven to 3 decimal places will certainly be the most challenging aspect of this.


What is a cookie sheet? Does it have cookies marked out on it and do you have to place exactly one nut in each cookie outline? smiley - winkeye

No TC, it is what Brits call a baking tray.

Okay, the word 'cookie' is gone, and it's a 'baking sheet'. smiley - laugh

That's what I get for pasting in Mrs McGillicuddy's email instructions. smiley - rofl

'121.111° C' smiley - erm Do you mean '120'? Many ovens, particularly if they're a basic dial like mine, will probably have nothing between 120° and 130° degrees anyway. Maybe a little dot or line for where 125° is. Certainly nothing for 121.111° smiley - yikes

Thank you. smiley - ok That's what I was fishing for. I was waiting until somebody told me what mark on their oven dial was closest to 121.111. (You people think I just do that to be snarky...)

What mark is closest to 120? I think it is a tomato sauce stain… It's difficult keeping an electric oven clean because it takes a while for the hobs to cool down so you can wipe them.

120 is also 394 Kelvin. smiley - candle

You still have the enigmatic

"They are vegan if you use a substitute the egg white " in there. That's not a sentence!

I have no idea what a substitute for egg white would be, but I'm sure vegans do. Apple juice?

Thank you! (Bad typing - you have no idea how many typos I've found in the subject headings for next week's Post, I blame seasonal tiredness. Also 2legs.)

I don't know what the preferred vegan substitute for egg whites is. I'm seeing at least a dozen candidates on cooking sites. If anybody has one, I'll gladly include it.

I'm not vegan. I have celiac, and one set of food taboos is all I can handle. I can tell you how to make things gluten free. smiley - laugh
