I grew up next to a pecan grove. I have watched the vibrating harvesting and the pickup machine. But I have never seen it like this, or the further processing of the nuts.
This is a great video to show the processing of such a wondering and widely distributed and enjoyed nut.




So how do you say it?

1) Pee can
2) Pee Kahn
3) Peh can
4) Peh Kahn

Around here, most of us say Peh-Kahn.

If you think pecans taste horrible, it must be because you have old ones or ones from a bad season :p

Also, they must have all the shell stuff out of them before consuming, otherwise they'll be extremely bitter.
