Totally Nuts: Pecan Festival Next Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 1:36 PM

You can do all sorts of things with pecans. Rachel Ray makes martinis out of them, others make beer out of them. Some people even make pies out of them. Versatile nuts, those pecans.

This is all on my mind because the second annual Sahuarita Pecan Festival takes place next weekend, and we’ve just gotten word that the deadline for entries to the festival’s community bake-off has been extended until Wednesday, Nov. 17. It costs $20 to enter, and winners take home $50 and five pounds of pecans.

More information about how to enter the bake-off, a full schedule of events and a list of vendors scheduled to sell pecan-laced foods at the event can be found here.
