    We know it is pronounced pee can but do not spell it different than pecan. We know that we pronounce it right.

    The only people I know who say PEE-can are Hollywood actors in movies about the South made by people who don't know anything about the South.

    According to the just released census of agriculture Georgia is easily the #1 in pecan production. What we say goes. Mama not even on the charts.

    I’m from California and I thought it was pretty interchangeable. My wife is southern through and through (been on the same land here in Lawrenceville for 200 years) and says pee-can, so I’ll defer to her on this one.

    I was raised in Albany, and my family has been in SW Ga since 1780. We say Pe-Kahn.

  • JRT812JRT812 Posts: 2,921 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    lord have mercy... this thread has me all confused. I say it differently depending on what I am referring to. Just give me some pie and let stew on it

  • YaleDawgYaleDawg Posts: 1,013 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    We should stop referring to it as a pecan pie and call it the best dam.n thing to pass between your lips

    It is pe-Kahn. A pee can is for when you dont want to go to the outhouse on a cold night

    So the story goes something like this:

    A yankee returned from his first ever travels to Florida and was asked his assessment of the south. He replied, “It was fine except the poverty level got worse the further south we drove, at least until we hit Florida.”

    ”When we drove through Virginia all the signs read, ‘Very Clean Restrooms’. NC boasted ‘Clean Restrooms’, while SC only claimed just ‘Restrooms’.

    But once we crossed the GA line for miles and miles we saw nothing but signs for ‘Pee-cans’!

    Also, Peecan Pie is easier to pronounce.

    In all instances it’s pee-can, except when you’re talking about ice cream which case it’s pee-Kahn why is it like that? Idk the southern dialect is a tangled web.


    I'm from North Carolina and it always has been and always will be pee-can pie.
