Add Pecans … America’s Natural Nut … To Any Recipe!
Add the nutty rich taste of fresh pecans to vegetable and fruit dishes; ice-cream, cobblers, cookies, or pastries; waffles, cereals, or breads; or baked meats and casseroles! Pecans are #1 for adding just the right texture, flavor, and nutrition to your favorite dish.
Maintaining the fresh flavor of your farm harvested pecans is easy! If properly handled and stored, fresh pecans can be enjoyed for many months after harvest. If improperly stored, pecan meats can darken in color and lose their fresh flavor. You can keep your fresh pecans at peak flavor by storing
at 0 o F for up to two or more years. The color will remain golden and the taste will be fresh and vibrant. Wise pecan lovers make a habit of storing their freshly shelled pecans in airtight freezer containers and extracting only the amounts needed. Frozen pecan nutmeats thaw quickly and retain their flavor and crispness extremely well.
