Pecan Pie using brown sugar instead of corn syrup. My family, originally from the south, always made Pecan Pie with brown sugar...not syrup. I don't know if this was the original recipe or if the syrup method existed simultaneously. I do know southerners did not make, nor have ready access to, maple syrup...that's a New England food.
