Pecans. Contains tree nuts.
Pecans are the edible kernels that grow inside the seeds of the pecan tree (Carya illinoiensis). Originating in the southern United States, wild pecans were a staple component of Native American diets. In fact our word "pecan" is a form of the Algonquin word "paccan" which referred to the edible nuts of any variety of hickory tree, including both what we call "pecan" and what we call "walnuts."
Modern agricultural methods have made the cultivation of pecans more profitable, including by increasing the productivity of each tree. The U.S. is responsible for 80 percent of the world's annual pecan production, primarily in Georgia, Texas and New Mexico.
Pecans are beloved for their pleasant crunch, their rich, buttery nut flavor and (increasingly) for their nutritional content. Pecans are a good source of protein, unsaturated fats and are rich in omega-6 fatty acids and plant sterols.
Our Pecan Meal is made from premium U.S.-grown pecans ground them to a coarse meal. Pecan Meal lends its rich, buttery pecan flavor and pleasantly light crunch to piecrusts, baking batters, streusel toppings and coatings or crusts for chicken or fish.
Infused with our Pecan Meal and almond extract, these tender-textured cookies are a deliciously nutty treat. Finished with a quick toss in powdered sugar, they pair wonderfully with a cup of piping-hot tea on a snowy winter day.
