WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina. This week’s recipe wraps up a month of recipes featuring pecans, which are now in season.
This week’s recipe for Hot Toddy Pecan Bars took first place in the Karo Sweet-Treats for Sweet-Hearts Contest at the N.C. State Fair. Lisa notes that these bars are “a mini pecan pie with the sweet surprise of orange zest.”
You can find local pecans at farmers markets across the state. Find a local farmers market at ncfarmfresh.com.
