Soft Pecan Pralines

The praline was brought to New Orleans by nuns in the 1700s. The pecan was a natural fit, as it is a native North American nut although originally not strong enough for production. An enslaved nurseryman, Antoine, created a hybrid pecan tree that was strong enough for the rigors of agribusiness in the mid-1800s. For centuries, the praline was sold by Creole women on the streets and at fairs in New Orleans. These pralines are especially soft and creamy with plenty of nuts…reminding us that the praline, made of caramelized sugar, was the parent to the caramel. Comes with two in a box and a tag with a picture of a New Orleans praline-seller, circa 1880s.

Pecan Pie Tarts

The pecan pies are delicious, if we do say so ourselves. Light, melt-in-your-mouth direct from a pecan plantation in Texas. The history is hard to say: most think it originated in Texas in the late 1800s, but pies were widely used in various forms for workers to eat at lunch. The praline originated in New Orleans based on the French praline in the 1700s, and the pecan is a native North American nut. An enslaved nurseryman, Antoine, created a hybrid pecan tree that was strong enough for the rigors of agribusiness in the mid-1800s and the rest is history. These pecans are bite-size, perfect after lunch, as a snack, or whenever else you want to indulge…but not over-indulge. Comes two to a bag with a collectable tag describing the history with an historic picture of the pecan tree.

Truly Divine Pecan Divinity

Divinity came to the front of leisure candies in the early 1900s. The taste is rich and sweet – in essence, divine. And that is likely where the name comes from. Exactly where the sweet originates is anyone’s guess…likely from the south given the pecans that anoint the top. Regardless, it showed up in cookbooks in the North, as well, making it a classic American candy. 4 oz.  Made by Dillon of Georgia.
