Pecan is a kind of nut that grows mostly in Texas, USA. It has a very dynamic shape that makes it easily distinguishable from other nuts. A pecan tree (the tree which houses pecans) is known to grow to exceptional sizes, which is fitting for a food from Texas.
Pecan tastes great. Itís very buttery and performs with excellence in both sweet and savory dishes. One of the most important contributions from pecan is the pecan pie.
Pecan became an official snack on May 28th 2012.
