BROADSTREET COUNSELING CENTER Grandma Swain’s Pecan Pie Loft Gardens Intimate gatherings at the loft gardens Sleeps up to 10 Book your holidays events with loft gardens Call Doris at 252 339 6317 for rates. When the holidays came around Grandma Swain was always busy making goodies. She enjoyed baking and when the weather cooled down she went to making food for the boys. Her pecan pie was special. Made with sorghum molasses, it was not as sweet as the pies you buy nowadays in the store. In later years she substituted pre-made pie crusts and Dark Karo syrup if she could not get sorghum molasses. We skipped the homemade crust part of this recipe. Ingredients: 1 pie crust (pre-made) 1/3 cup dark brown sugar 3 eggs, beaten 4 tablespoons melted butter 1 tablespoon cornstarch ¼ teaspoon salt ¾ cup sorghum molasses 1½ cups chopped pecans Instructions: Pre-heat the oven to 375°. Roughly chop the pecans. (save some halves for the top) Combine the brown sugar and the eggs in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the cornstarch and salt. Melt the butter and stir it in. Add the chopped pecans and sorghum and mix one last time. Pour everything into pie crust Lay pecan halves on the top (as many as you like - you may have to let it firm up a little fi rst) Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the center is fi rm. Let the pie sit for 15 minutes before cutting.

Jake’s Outdoor Adventures Suddenly, the month of December has arrived and Christmas is right around the corner. Many people ask me during the Christmas season what to buy for the fi sherman in their life, so here are some gift ideas. Gift Certificates are great presents for your fi sherman. Some fi shermen are very particular about the type of fi shing equipment they use, so a gift certifi cate allows them to buy exactly what they want. Try to buy local when you buy these and keep the money in the neighborhood. Don’t limit gifts to just fi shing gear because if your fi sherman owns a boat, they would appreciate a gift certifi cate from their marina to use for oil, fuel stabilizers and service. Local tackle shop certifi cates are also great because the fi sherman can use it all year to grab what they may need on the way to the water. Another great idea is a towing membership from Sea Tow or Boat US. This membership will give your fi sherman piece of mind when they hit the water knowing they always have a ride in if the unexpected happens. Check with both services to see their operating areas before purchasing one. by Jake Worthington If your fisherman likes to surf or pier fi sh, then make their day by buying them assorted lead weights. Every fi sherman needs weights because the sea likes to take them on occasion. Also because the price of lead is so high these days, most fi sherman don’t stock up like they used to because of the cost. Common size weights for most fi shermen are pyramid 2, 3 and 4 ounce sinkers. Drum fi sherman prefer the 8 ounce pyramids when they are casting the Drum Heavers. If you want to package them distinctively, you can put them in a canvas bag with a red bow and you will have a happy fi sherman for sure. If you want to buy a high end gift for that special someone, then think about a Yeti or Pelican Brand Cooler. These coolers are tough and durable and really hold ice for days. However they start at about $225 for 20 quart coolers and go up to $1000 for 250 quart models. You may have to ask your fi sherman what size they prefer because a cooler can be too small or too big for their use. If your fisherman needs a new reel then you are in luck because Penn Reels has just released their new Slammer Series of Spinning reels. These reels are designed with the fi sherman in mind and they come in several different sizes to match your style of fishing. Check with your local tackle shop to see what they have. Finally if your fi sherman belongs to a Fishing Club or other like minded organizations, then investigate buying them a Lifetime Membership in their organization. Many clubs such as the Cape Hatteras Anglers Club and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association have these lifetime memberships available and once purchased your fi sherman will never have to pay dues again.
