Pecans are one of the most popular nuts. Perfect in Salads, Savory dishes, Pies, and Pastries, Pecans are a wonderful Nut that can be utilized in a variety of dishes. It happens to be my favorite although I have never been a fan of Pecan Pie. The pecan nut is soft and packs a punch in taste and flavor. I love to snack on raw pecans or toast them in the oven. Candied pecans are a wonderful snack for guests before serving dinner or dessert. Chop up pecans and add to any muffin or bread or even cookies that you plan on baking up.
