Q.

Pecan meats spongy

Zone 72956 | chrisnlisa0824 added on November 21, 2018 | Answered

I am shelling pecans and although the meats are fully formed they feel spongy. Are these still edible and how do I dry them or make them unspongy? I planned on using them mostly for baking.

They are likely edible with baking, but this is usually because the nut didn't fully ripen before being cracked.
