From Fall to Winter – Archives Contest — 29 Comments

  1. AHHH,I did find it BW but as I still have Pecans in the freezer from last year I will pass it on to someone else to enjoy,good thing I put up a lot last year because the limb rats cut all this years crop down before they were ready.

      • Crabbing has slowed a little for us do to the cold but should pick back up as soon as all these below freezing nights quit,(some nice 80 degree days would help too} Still doing fair though,had 7 boxes last trip with half being big males.

  2. What a lovely treasure hunt….it sent me to reading all your past posts with ‘satsuma’ in the entry. I’d forgotten how we used to gobble them down around Christmas time when I was a little girl and we lived in Harahan, La. Thank you for the lovely memory ride, BW!

    3. It seems etrish/Trish had never eaten one.
    4. Sugarcane from mom-in-law’s yard

    Mmmmmm, candied spiced pecans—here I come!!

  3. Well, that didn’t take long enough! Should have done the “random drawing’ of all correct responses. But I’m a woman of my word, so Musing Egret gets the pecans! Email me your addy again, M.E.

    Now, anyone manage to get a new friend to read and comment? One more bag of pecans waiting . . .


  4. Well, it looks like I’ve already missed out! LOL

    Satsumas, huh? Oh, man, I love my citrus and I’ll bet those things ARE yummy. Eating the skin makes me think of kumquats. When I can get them, which isn’t often. Too bad satsumas can’t be shipped.

    Sugar cane. I haven’t had cane in so long, it ain’t funny. I’ve never spotted any at the farmer’s markets. Admittedly, I don’t hit them all, so someone out there may sell them.

    My Papah (paternal granddad) used to grow them on his farm. Years before I was born, it was to make and sell the syrup. By the time I came along, he just had a small patch for treats.

    I remember many a time, sitting with him, my Dad or my uncles and them whipping out the ever-present pocket knife, peeling and cutting up cane for us to chew on.

  5. Wait a minute, bags of cracked pecans??? What a way to get out of peeling pecans, lol. I like satsumas too but, my neighbor grows the absolute best tasting citrus ever, his tangerines make satsumas taste like sawdust. I would have shared a few with you but the kids and I inhaled them.

  6. I love chewing sugar cane! Haven’t had it in several years. I always bought a small stalk each year for my kids. I sometimes see it in the fall in the grocery store in about 10-12″ pieces. But, they put wax on it. UGH. I know it is to seal it but, it just doesn’t look as good.

    • Hm. Sorry to hear that . . . because I’m not sure what “cat call” means and I sure hope it’s G rated, lol! However, your new pic showed up beside your last post under beside your regular name. 🙂

    • Thats my ebay handle BW,The older I get the more “G” rated I find myself(roll eyes) but I can call our cats without using a can opener most of the time which is pretty neat considering the Independence and indifference of a cat.We are feeding 20 now with 14 that we call ours,the neighbors say it’s my entourage when I am out in the yard.

  7. Well, I missed out on this contest, but that’s ok. I’ve got a sack full to shell that my granddaughter picked up. I also have some (shelled ) in the freezer.

  8. Two Satsuma and one Orange tree right off the deck in the back. Satsumas produce so many fruits they will actually split the tree on the one closest to the deck.

    John Folse has a really good Satsuma and Cane Syrup pecan pie recipe. Its definitely different.

  9. Hi, I’m kind of a new reader. I stumbled on your site via the Outdoor Blogger Network.

    I always thought satsuma was just another name for mandarin, but it sounds like they’re different. I don’t think I’ve actually had a satsuma either, actually. They sound delicious.

    • Some of the old bayou people call them “mandarines”, pronounced “man der eens” like tangerines; but they really are a totally different citrus. I really love the no-seed part AND the skins are edible.

      Welcome to the bayou, Jess. It’s always great to have a new reader take time to leave a comment. Visit daily because I think I’m about to launch a series of contests to start off the new year with a BANG! BW

  10. Blu is seeing red. Red French Press that is.
    Matches the Mr Coffee almost perfect. Off to pick up some 8 O’clock or Millstone beans. I’ll send a photo essay when I perfect the art. Might have to buzz up Robb.
