170g (6oz) Pecan Halves

Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl, beat in the sugar, add the melted butter, syrup, rum, lemon zest, salt and a few drops of vanilla extract, stir in the pecan halves.

2American Pecan Pie Empty But where to find pecans?? on 10th September 2009, 2:15 pm

This sounds fab, but I've never seen pecans in Italy.

Anyone know where they can be found?

You could try Castroni's they have some things or the international section of a large supermarket might have that kind of stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions, though I've never heard of Castroni's and the international sections of the stores near me are pretty pathetic... time for a care package me thinks!
