I love pecan season (and so does our thieving herd of deer), but hate to crack and shell. Usually, I collect pecans, drag them to the feed store to be cracked, and beg people to shell for me. But this year, no more. I bought an old pressure cooker book at a thrift store, and voila, a quick and easy way to shell pecans. If you have pecans, invest in a pressure cooker – so worth it, it’s amazing. Plus, there’s lots of other great recipes for pressure cookers. I bought an Aeternum Pressure Cooker years ago, and never had a problem with it, or any of the scary horror stories people talk about.
