What are you Cooking?-----Add a Texas Pecan!

  1. Pecan In The Shell - buy them from any Texas Pecan Grower for guaranteed freshness and flavor.  Crack and eat as fast as you can!

  2. Pecan Halves - typically bought to add a festive decoration to fresh salads or as a topper to baked goods.  Nobody can resist a dish with beautiful pecan halves!

  3. Pecan Pieces - pecans that have been shelled and cut into pieces making it easy to add them to fresh items like salads or ice cream or for adding to baking recipes.  Try substituting Pecan Pieces where a recipe calls for other nuts and notice how the flavor increases.  Pecan pieces impart lots of pecan flavor into dishes!

  4. Pecan Meal - a byproduct of shelling and processing pecans.  Meal will thicken sauces, enhance flavors in baking, can be used as a coating or breading on seafood, chicken or any fried foods and even makes great peanut butter.

  5. Pecan Butter - a rich textured spread that can be used as a replacement for other "butters" or spreads and is used a lot in bakery and confectionery items because of its enhanced "nutty" flavor.

  6. Pecan Oil - made by pressing the natural oils out of the pecan kernel.  One of the highest quality oils sold and good for you too!  Substitute Pecan Oil anywhere your recipe calls for oil as a coating or in cooking.
