Holiday Recipe Season, Southern Style

It’s official. We’ve entered holiday recipe season. Here at Pearson Farm we want you to consider making southern style recipes this holiday season. Now before you dismiss this thought it is important to point out that southern style is not exclusively a geographic thing. While southern style IS born in the south, it is much more an attitude. Southern style embodies the ingredients and a style of cooking that is very much its own.

Historically, southern style food is good, down-home cooking with its flavor roots in the rural South. When you think of southern style foods you immediately think of hot biscuits, collard greens, grits, corn bread and fried chicken. But nothing says Hello Holiday’s like praline pecans. In fact, putting pecans in nearly any holiday dish is a well rooted southern tradition that we hold very dear.

As growers of Georgia pecans we hold fast to a more than 100 year tradition of “fresh from the tree” thinking when it comes to pecans. As we enter the holiday season we embrace the opportunity and the southern tradition of including pecans in nearly every single meal.

As you begin to plan your holiday meals we encourage you to take your mouth to the south and embrace southern style holiday recipes. May we suggest some of the following seasonal southern style dishes; cinnamon pecan rolls, pecan praline cookies, southern pecan pie, pecan crusted chicken or praline pecan crusted bacon (my personal favorite). The truth is pecans can make most dishes taste just a little bit better. Even sweet potato casserole is not complete without that perfect pinch of pecans.

So, just like in the old southern tradition where cooks cooked with what they had available to them. We would like to make our fresh pecan crop available to you.  Stay tuned for good southern style holiday recipes from our kitchen.
