Description:

Pecans can be traced back to the 16th century. Pecans are the only major tree nut that grows naturally in North America and is considered one of the most valuable North American nut species.  Pecans are a member of the hickory family and are the only major tree nut that grows naturally in North America.  Pecan trees prefer temperate climates.  The Pecan's smooth, tan shell is about 1 inch in length and relatively thin.  The buttery-rich kernel is golden-brown on the outside and beige on the inside.  Whether they are chopped or halved or ground into meal, Pecans add a unique flavor to any recipe.  Pecans can be enjoyed year round for their meaty rich taste and numerous health benefits. Pecans contain unsaturated, heart healthy fat (over 70%) and are an excellent source for protein making it a great substitute for meat in the diet. Loved by culinary professionals for their sweet crunch and undeniable flavor, Pecans are an ideal ingredient for many foods.  Our Pecan halves are already split for your convenience. Pecan Halves are perfect for making caramel turtles, dessert cakes, savory cookies, confections, and pies.
