2017 Regional Pecan Show Results

By Neal Alexander

The Central Region Pecan Show was held in Bell County on December 6th and 7th, 2017. There were 161 entries, representing 11 Texas counties in the Central, Central West and Southwest districts. Dr. Larry Stein acted as judge. Pecans of outstanding quality were seen in this regional competition, which we believe reflects on the educational efforts of Texas A&M AgriLife extension agents and specialists in Texas to provide resources, expertise and training on pecan production and management.

The top three places in each variety class will be held in frozen storage until the state show to be held at the Texas Pecan Growers Conference in San Marcos, July 15-18.

Over the past 10 years, we have returned more than 95 percent of our earnings back to our members," added Novosad. "That adds up to more than half a billion dollars returned to our members."

Hicks, Cortinovis and Hanley take top Culinary Honors in 61st Annual San Saba County Pecan Food Show

By Lynn Blankenship

The 61st annual San Saba County Pecan Food Show was held December 1st in the County Offices at the Arrowhead Bank Building. Following the competition, the bake sale was held in the lobby.

Six judges from neighboring counties spent a busy morning tasting 49 entries. There were two judges for each Division. First they chose the best entry from each category: Appetizer, Bread, Cake, Candy, Cookies and Fancy Nuts and gave them a blue ribbon. Then the judges chose the best from the blue ribbon winners in their division to receive the Grand and Reserve Champion Rosettes.

In the Club division, they chose Orabeth Hicks’ Butter Toffee-Pecan Cake as Grand Champion. The Spicy Pecans made by Barbara Gorter Bell took the Reserve Champion honors. In the Non-Club division, the Grand Champion rosette was given to Valerie Cortinovis for her Rosemary Chipotle Spice Pecans and Gale Ivy took the Reserve Champion rosette with her Pecan Bars.
