Pecan belongs to the walnut family native to temperate North America. Rich in flavour and texture, the pecan has one of the highest fat contents of any vegetable product and with a caloric value very close to that of butter. Pecans have a distinctly sweet and buttery flavour and a mildly floral aroma. Its outside is slightly bitter but its flesh is sweet and buttery. And guess what, it can actually crumble, much like a cookie!
