5. Are these fresh pecans (this year's crop?) If so, do you season them? My Dad always

used to say that nuts needed to be "seasoned." He would let them sit in the shell for a month or so before shelling them. If they were this year's crop and shelled, they also needed to sit for a couple weeks at least before using them. I remember when we lived in mid-Georgia and had pecan trees in the backyard, the first nuts that fell off the trees were somewhat bitter and tasted too green.

My daughter always sends Northwestern shelled walnuts and hazelnuts every Christmas. We usually put them in the freezer, but sometimes they taste a bit "green" so we toast them before using.

Would love to hear from someone who has expertise on this subject.

7. Who says there are no rewards in teaching?

There's at least one set of great parents in that school.
