We stopped by the Hillsborough Farmers Market last weekend to see a bunch of our friends at the market and to pick up a few things. Even though it’s mid-winter the market still has plenty of farm-fresh goodness. Free-range brown eggs are plentiful, antibiotic free meats (pork, chicken and beef), salad greens, potatoes, homemade baked goods and more.
We picked up some freshly harvested North Carolina Pecans from Allison at Cooper-Lasley Farms. Honestly, because I was raised in New England, I had absolutely no idea what a non-shelled pecan even looked like. These are so yummy and tasty! These pecans are great for your desserts, oatmeal, yogurt parfait and even on top of an ice cream sundae. Stop by the market to see Allison! She’s got farm raised pork, chicken, free-range eggs and plenty of these delicious North Carolina Pecans! My husband and I sat for hours at the kitchen table, sipping coffee and chatting while we cracked fresh pecans. It was so much fun and I’m looking forward to using all these yummy pecans in my upcoming recipes!
