Organic Pecan Nuts (Extra Large Pieces)
Related to the walnut, pecans are native to America, and grow enclosed in a glossy, browny-red oval shell. The kernel inside shares the walnut’s trademark grooved surface but has a slightly more even, oval shape. Its skin is a warmer, lighter brown, and the nut itself is creamier in colour.
Pecans are a great source of B vitamins (thiamin, niacin and folate), which your body needs to break down the foods you eat into the energy you need. They’re also packed with potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. Pecans are also a good source of fibre.
Pecans are high in Vitamin E and numerous other vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre and protein. Eaten on their own, as a snack, or in salads, stews, porridges or baked goods.
Pecans are popular for use in baking and dessert cooking, though the nut is also available on its own as an addition to salads, or as a heating accompaniment to vegetables or cheese.
Organic pecan nuts are big, crunchy and delicious. They have a distinctive nutty flavour, with a firm texture and nearly sweet taste when cooked. Organic pecans are a rich source of energy. They also contain healthy fats, numerous essential minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.
