Tastes of the South is a new column by Charlotte Myer, Specialty Food Buyer at Southern Season, highlighting South Carolina vendor’s and their delicious local products.
Born in Charleston to a military family, Kay grew up on U.S. Military bases all over the country, but her love of the Lowcountry pulled her home. She currently resides on a 150-acre farm outside of Charleston with her husband and their dogs, horses and chickens.
Molly & Me Pecans started in 2008 when Kay began picking up the pecans on the farm and started recipe testing, sharing her creations with family and friends. A hobby soon turned into a business and today she and one other team member produce wonderful seasoned and candied pecans—tasty twists on a classic Southern treat.
They create several flavors which can be used in a variety of different ways. I love to throw some of the Sneaky Hot pecans on my salads, fold the Sugar & Spice pecans into cookies or sprinkle the Cinnamon Sugar pecans onto ice cream or on top of a quick bread.
