Pecans have it all. These rich-tasting nuts have many versatile uses in cooking. They can be added to salads to give a crunchy texture, topped on cereal and ice cream, or encrusted on chicken or pork. They can also be used in baking muffins, cakes and bread.
And don't forget, besides their delicious flavor, pecans are also loaded with healthy benefits, especially for the heart.
